SPOKE! Poetry Program feat. Tatyana Brown

Tatyana Brown is a traveling performer, educator, organizer, and activist focused on reawakening audiences to the power (both emotional and political) of the oral tradition. Using humor, honestly, and imagery-driven cathartic moments crafted through an approach that bridges the genres of magical realism and confessional work, her poetry challenges audiences and readers alike to imagine transcending cultural patterns of violence and inequity. She also teaches workshops everywhere from coffeeshops and bars to middle school classrooms to homeless shelters on critical analysis/writing for poetry, storytelling, performance and the use of various forms of media (including shock-value comedy) as a tool to interrupt and dismantle systemic oppression.
