ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE

BADDDDD SONIA SANCHEZ
by Barbara Attie, Janet Goldwater, Sabrina Schmidt Gordon
91 minutes, 2015

Maya Angelou called Sonia Sanchez “a lion in literature’s forest” while spoken word artist Bryonn Bain credits her with paving the way for his generation: “she not only opened the door, she blew off the roof.” Sanchez revolutionized poetry by incorporating street language, a unique performance style, and collaborations with jazz musicians. BaddDDD Sonia Sanchez offers unprecedented access to the life, work, and mesmerizing performances of the renowned poet and activist. A leading figure in the Black Arts Movement and an inspiration to today’s hip-hop spoken word artists, Sanchez has helped redefine American culture and politics as an activist for equity and justice.

Join us for film screenings followed by a provocative discussion about the themes. REEL Talks are free, but reservations are required.
