A Young Poet from The Bronx (from Bill Moyers)

Once again I want to highlight poetry on my blog during the month of April. Here is a piece from Bill Moyers' program Moyers & Company that speaks to the benefit of practicing poetry right where you live. -CK

April is National Poetry Month. As a young Latina poet growing up in the Bronx, Haydil Henriquez was inspired by poets like Nikki GiovanniAudre LordeWillie Perdomo and Martín Espada. In this video portrait, Henriquez talks about how poetry has shaped her life and she reads from her poem, "Bronx."
