I a teacher and poetry slam team coach at Tarrant High School in Birmingham. This summer I am volunteering as a coach with Real Life Poets of Birmingham to support the youth voices of our city. You can read more about our story in the link below. We are practicing 3 hours a day, 4 days a week all summer to get ready to share our stories and art with the world. Please check out some of the video links below to see our poets in action! We are almost halfway to meeting our goal of the funding needed to get the team to Chicago. If any of you can share this link out and donate if possible it would be greatly appreciated!
