Tumblr gets all the wins for spreading the word on so many issues that need more attention.

#pages matam  #spoken word  #tw: rape 

It’s hilarious to read the comments pertaining to the female embodiment that is Chinaka Hodge. “I literally had no idea Chinaka Hodge was a girl until I watched this video…” kids need to do their homework. Chinaka is awesome and I was lucky enough to meet her at an 826 Valencia event before i knew the magnitude of her talent (only of her beauty). I probably would’ve been way more awkward if I had known how talented she really is!!

From last week’s performance in Berkeley. My phone hates recording things for more than 2 minutes so I got really lucky that it captured nearly the entire piece minus the last two words of “your son”.
