Taught by Keno Evol
This workshop will focus on how black poetry has been used as a tactical tool to organize, archive dreams, grievances and pathways to other worlds. Specifically focusing on the intersections between trap music, black fugitive planning and black social life. Participants will dive into the craft of writing and dreaming, discuss how poetry can be used to organize community, uplift volume in community and speak truth about power in 2017. Time will also be spent discussing what it means to prepare young people to not adapt to the world but to challenge the world with their intellect, courage and unique voice. Participants will also spend some time creating and sharing their own poetic work.
