Student Work

From a SpeakTogether virtual workshop, Talent Unlimited High School, Spring 2020

This poem was composed during a six-week session conducted by author and spoken word artist Sheri Booker, who worked with a class of 10th-grade students to develop their voices. This workshop took place during a global pandemic, a national lockdown, and uprisings across the country to end police brutality and structural racism. Read more about the works in this collection, which are artifacts of this period and a true testament to the vision, creativity, and resilience of these students.

Listen to a recording of the following poem above. 

Final Poem

by Hailey Anagnostopoulos

There is one race:
The human race
Racism is taught
And needs to be fought
Equality is needed
People being mistreated
The color of skin
Discriminations is a sin
Know what’s right
And put up a fight.

Hailey Anagnostopoulos was a sophomore at Talented Unlimited High School in NYC at the time of this recording.
