this episode is no longer available

Listen in this Friday at 7pm to Full Circle on @KPFA to @_DariusSimpson, @AchyObejas @achylandia @guaraguasi & @MimiTempestt @thegoddessmimi explore the power of poetry, and it’s place in revolution. These virtual kitchen conversations were inspired by Audre Lorde’s essay Poetry is not a Luxury.  

We’ll share live recordings from @Litquake Out Loud’s outdoor stage 10/16 Revolution Poeticized which challenges each of us to reimagine what true political transformation looks like through poetry. In Three Voices, Three Worlds, Achy Obejas presents Boomerang/Bumerán, a bilingual collection of lyrical poetry written in mostly gender-free English and Spanish that addresses immigration, displacement, love and activism.
