A Tree

Got the opportunity to hang out with 4 kindergarten classes earlier this week...we rapped about all things, black history month, words, rhymes and music. I started all four sessions off with the poem that follows accompanied by some great little actors and actresses...it was great!
Super beat (tired) right now so I haven't had a lot of time to reflect...but I'll be posting some more details soon!
February is my favourite month!
How was your family day?

Dear Freedom

To kick off Black History Month, I was invited to share some poetry I wrote and conduct a writing workshop on all things poetry (more specifically spoken word and hip-hop) at Branksome Hall, an amazing school in the heart of the city (Toronto of course!).

I appreciate their community welcoming me.

I appreciate the girls that listened that day.

I appreciate the culture so deeply.

Here's the spoken word piece that I shared in the assembly:


Thank You!
