If Gentrification Was a Broom

“If Gentrification Was A Broom….”

This sista said it all! I have cussed and carried on something awful against gentrification, but what I have said, pales in comparison to what this particular poet had to say.

Listen and listen good!

  1. Wow, Shelby. Great example of Slam Poetry, an African American cultural innovation that doesn’t receive nearly the attention it deserves. What I like is the opportunity is the voice it gives working and low income community members (you sure don’t see that happening in white communities) – also the attention it draws to the importance of community in itself.

    1. Dr. Bramhall, no disrespect to you, but white folks just don’t have what we have. They have never had to deal with the shit from themselves that we have to deal with and so therefore, you will never hear anything like this coming from whites. It just ain’t possible.

      But I do thank you for your comment.
