Dominique Christina - “For Emmett Till” (WoWPS 2014)

"In this photo, he’s laughing. And there is no cotton gin tied around his waist. He’s not stretched into swollen limbs. His eyes are still hazel, and recognizable. Two neat white rows of perfect teeth sit totem-like in his mouth. And the world did not know him because he had not been murdered yet."

Women of the World Poetry Slam champion, in 2014 AND 2012. So excited to have our first video of her up.

"Straight-necked full of tomorrows boy"

Damn
