Graffiti Verite' 7: Random Urban Static: … Spoken Word
GV7 probes the reality of spoken word poets, or, poets that write for the stage. Spoke Word poetry, often flavored with Hip-Hop, connects with today’s youth because the poetics of this art form speak to their love for live performance, their suppressed passions, and the cultural attitudes concerning the world in which they live. Spoken word helps them to unravel, articulate, and document their experiences.
Bryan shares the perspectives of 15 uniquely talented spoken word poets. From grand-slam champions to open-mic veterans, GV7 crosses all philosophical, racial, and social lines.

TWN acknowledges that in New York we are on the unceded territory of the Lenni Lenape,
Canarsie, Shinecock, and Munsee peoples and challenges the harm that continues to
be inflicted upon Indigenous and People of Color communities here and abroad,
which is why we all need to be part of the struggle for rights, equality and justice.
