The history of poetry for protest and organizing. Short poems used to be used as a means of communication for rebellions because they were easy to remember. Most protest songs are poetry. Even the chants at protests today are poems.
Join poet and recording artist Ursula Rucker and poet, activist, curator and educator, Nina “Lyrispect” Ball in conversation with our series host, Ginger Rudolph, for a look at the deep history and long connection between poetry and activism.
