Jeune poète, éducateur et militant, Malcom London récite un poème émouvant traitant de la vie aux lignes de front du lycée. Des « flots d'adolescents » qui vont à l'école « sans jamais apprendre à nager » à la masculinité esquissée par des hommes qui n'ont jamais eu de père ». Beau, lyrique et saisissant.

Poet, performer, activist
Young spoken-word poet Malcolm London has been called the "Gil Scott-Heron of this generation" (by Cornel West). His feisty, passionate performances take on the issues of the day, including the Chicago education system in which he grew up. Full bio
