ArtSunday: the words of Joshua Bennett

I’m not normally a slam guy. I’m a poet, and slam poetry tends to be more about the performance and less about the words, per se. That’s a generalization, I know, and there are exceptions. Most slam I see has more in common with hip-hop than poetry.

All that said, this guy is amazing.

  • Nice Sam – thanks for sharing this link. I like Rives too – he explains his art in this short clip. These important themes and messages deserve a voice that is different than the daily clutter.
    Be well – Dawn
