"Om jag skulle få en dotter, istället för 'mamma', ska hon kalla mig för 'Punkt B'... " började spoken word poeten Sarah Kay i ett tal som gav två stående ovationer vid TED2011. Hon berättar historien om sin förvandling – från en storögd tonåring som absorberar varenda replik vid New Yorks Bowery Poetry Club till en lärare som för samman barn med kraften av självuttryckelse genom Project V.O.I.C.E. – och ger två hisnande framföranden av "B" och "Hiroshima".
