Killing Poetry: Blackness and the Making of Slam and Spoken Word Communities

by

Killing Poetry examines the performance of race as it relates to gender, sexuality, and class in the spoken word communities of Los Angeles, Chicago, and New York. Javon Johnson, a renowned slam poet himself, focuses on how slam poets navigate the diverse poetry scenes in which they perform, as part of the larger world they encounter as Black Americans.
