So after being in America after my trip in Ecuador for two days at that point in January, I managed to check out the poetry portion of the Elgin Literary Festival. It was time well spent, and I took some video of the poets who performed.
This is Chalet Cortes reading her poem “Confessions of a Mixed Chick”. As you can gauge from the title, it deals with living as a biracial (in this case, Black/White mixed) woman living here in America. The passion and the overall content of this poem is very believable and I know people can relate to it.
