De jonge dichter, pedagoog en activist Malcolm London draagt zijn roerende gedicht voor over het leven aan de frontlinies van de highschool. Hij vertelt over de 'oceanen van adolescenten', die naar school gaan 'maar nooit leren zwemmen', van 'mannelijkheid die nagebootst wordt door mannen die opgroeiden zonder vader'. Prachtig, lyrisch en verontrustend.

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
