Poetry in Motion

About This Episode


Storytelling with a kick! The words, sounds and people that bring poetry to lifeā€¦a painful story about bullying ("To This Day"); inaccurate assumptions about a pretty face ("Slip of the Tongue"); the melting pot of identity politics ("Arab American Stories: Omar Offendum"); powerful memories of a soon-to-be demolished housing project ("When a City Loves"); and coming to terms and acceptance with loss ("Pass On"). Five shorts from cities across the USA, including San Francisco, Detroit, Chicago and Minneapolis, that are connected by the rhythm of words and the search for identity.
