What Do You Want Me To Say?
Spoken poetry is a great way to get a message across. In recent years, we've seen a surge in the numbers of Spoken Word poets. I've featured Boona Mohamed previously on the blog, and it is my pleasure to introduce Hersi Shirwa, a Somali American artist.
A little bit about the poet: Hersi is a former US Marine and veteran of Iraq. He is also a Somali Muslim. In this Video he recounts his experience as a Muslim in the American school system and the US military.
I hope you enjoy the work of this artist as much as i did. Also, head over here for more videos by young, Somali artists.
