Even the greatest among us encourages us to speak, then turn around and applaud us for helping them speak…
For over 15yrs and counting, Shea Brown, a poet and a friend that I have the honor of knowing, is the one that is being showcase for this edition of Friday Night Poetry Corner #17. She is Midwest’s own; born in Pine Bluff, AR and raise from St. Louis, MO she crafted the art of spoken word from old days of hip hop verses and singing grooves in the old neighborhood (Pagedale as well as every other damn neighborhood in between including Northside St. Louis City). More affectionately the district of Normandy, MO; home of unique underground artists of North County. She voice for many others who had no voice, she inspired creativity among her peers and influence the younger generation. She’s an all around artist, a jack of all trades that stems from crocheting, natural hair stylist, handy-woman, and wood craft.
Yes, I said woodcraft…
The sista’ can make chairs and tables y’all!
But let’s get back to poetry since this is the theme of this current blog as well as going hand in hand with Black History Month. Her strength in spoken word is like a warrior queen of Nordic Barb (reference by Punk-Master author J. Ethan Begley creator of the Anti-Utopia masterpiece The Gospel of Lazlo) as well as being called Strong Minded Poet (by the creative genius of Aftermath and Corner Pocket F. Kenneth Taylor), her persona carries great weight and her talent is second to none. She has a humble yet fiery spirit that can not, I repeat CAN NOT be denied by onlookers. I can carry on all day but rather for you to look at her video title…
Enjoy and allow this greatness to wash over you. Then let your mind wander in words of epic meaning…

I taught 11th grade history 33 years here in Miami predominately African American then school mostly Haitian. My grandchildren either by blood or as product of other marriage are combinations of African American, Cuban, Italian and Haitian. I clearly “get it” with Shea’s presentation. I hope they don’t suffer the cycle. Thanks visit my blog.
