Latino Poets Speakout
Three shorts featuring performances by some of New York City's vanguard Latino poets:

KILLKILLKILL by Jesus Papoleto Melendez (5 Min)

GOD BLESS AMERICA by Mariposa (2 min), and

TAMALES IN JANUARY by Carlo Baldi (3 min).

From the war to police brutality to the contradictions of being a person of color in the U.S., these shorts are both lyrical and powerful. Part of the Call for Change Series.

TWN acknowledges that in New York we are on the unceded territory of the Lenni Lenape, Canarsie, Shinecock, and Munsee peoples and challenges the harm that continues to be inflicted upon Indigenous and People of Color communities here and abroad, which is why we all need to be part of the struggle for rights, equality and justice.

TWN is supported in part by the National Endownment for the Arts, New York State Council on the Arts, New York City Department of Cultural Affarirs, New York Community Trust, Peace Development Fund, Humanities NY and individual donors.
