I have found the spoken word poetry of Denice Frohman. I bring her to you. She's from NYC and works in Philadelphia.
The first performance I stumbled on was Dear Straight People
from her preliminary performance at Women of the World Poetry Slam 2013. Weapons
, also from this year's Women of the World. She won the championship. This is the finals
. The editing is terrible, but she comes on at 7:16. And the other ladies are also awesome.Abuela
(do you remember you yet?)
An anti littering campaign on local Philadelphia news in 2010
she speaks about raising awareness.
She is active in the Philly Youth Poetry Movement
. And at Tedx Philly she and Gregory Corbin
ask how we can encourage young people?
Denice also recently performed at an immigration rally
. I lost it when she said "like proper has a sound." And that's when I knew I had to make this my first post on the blue.
