The Spoken Word Poetry Scene
by Phil John
The spoken word poetry scene comes out of New York City’s history as the home of creative freedom, a battleground for self expression, the birthplace of social and political movements where its busy streets and avenues served as a platform for voices to be heard. The Feminist Movement, the Black Panthers and Young Lords organizations of the late sixties, exercised their First Amendment right, coming up with clever ways of expressing their discontent. This boisterous verbal presentation of words paved a way for a new artistic genre to emerge known as The Spoken Word.
