Word Wednesday: Team Chicago “Shoot Your Shot”| Brave New Voices 2019

Man, when I say I wasn’t expecting this poem to take the turn it took, I couldn’t help but to applaud at the end of it. I truly felt the emotion on this one because it’s relatable. No, I haven’t gotten shot, but the confrontation of that angry breddren who decides to disrespect you simply because you won’t give him the time of day, is real. This was a beautiful poem and something many black girls are confronted with in their daily lives.

Take a listen to Team Chicago presented by Youth Speaks Brave New Voices with their poem Shoot Your Shot.
