You might wonder what spoken word poetry has to do with making change happen.
This is the ancient tradition of lyrical story-telling reinvented for an age of disruptive social innovators.
What if you spoke about what moves you?
You might find yourself standing in the middle of an incongruity of messages: we want you to think but we don't like the democratic voice which thinking gives you.
If you are there in that place, it's simply that they are uneasy that you might disrupt the safety of their significance and level the playing field.
The truth is that your unique perspective counts. Your creativity is unprecedented.
As Audre Lorde said, "I began to ask each time: "What's the worst that could happen to me if I tell this truth?"
What truth will you speak?
