This past Monday I presented 3 poems about racism in the workplace, violence against Aboriginal women, and the prison industrial complex at the Colour of Poverty 2013 conference: Poverty to Power.

I had the pleasure of sharing the stage with Indigenous Elder Ed Sackaney, Poet Laureate of Toronto George Elliott Clarke, and poet Amani.  BIG Thanks to Colour of Poverty for inviting me to read at their important event!

In the two post previous to this one I shared my Preparing For A Poetry Reading and A Poet’s Pointers For A Public Reading, both of which I used for the reading at Poverty to Power that you will see in the video below.
