World Poetry Day 2019

To celebrate #worldpoetryday here’s one of my all time favourite performances from Lemon Andersen that introduced me to the work of Etheridge Knight and what would become one of my favourite poems.

World Poetry Day is celebrated on 21 March, and was declared by UNESCO (the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) in 1999. Its purpose is to promote the reading, writing, publishing and teaching of poetry throughout the world, as the original UNESCO declaration said "give fresh recognition and impetus to national, regional and international poetry movements".
