youth speaks youth speaks – 2011 take back the american dream conference – slam poetry

JTMP has been attending the TBAD 2011 Conference, and one of the events was a poetry slam performance by someone from “Youth Speaks”, an organization that “places young people in control of their intellectual and artistic development.” They are driven by the belief that “literacy is a need, not a want, and that literacy comes in various forms.” They want young people to find, nurture, and use their spoken voice performance to be creators of social change.

The performance consisted of 2 poems, both speaking out about young people, education, students, and funding for music and arts in education. The artist, Jamaal Hall, electrified the crowd with his awesome performance. For more information you can check out the Youth Speaks website. Watch the performance below.
