Poetry In Motion (Episode #110)

KQED World: Tue, Mar 24, 2015 -- 7:00 AM

Storytelling with a kick! The words, sounds and people that bring poetry to life - a painful story about bullying; powerful memories of a soon-to-be demolished housing project; inaccurate assumptions about a pretty face; coming to terms and acceptance with loss; and the melting pot of identity politics. Five pieces from cities across the USA, including San Francisco, Detroit, Chicago and Minneapolis, that are connected by the rhythm of words and the search for identity.
