Somewhere in America
"Somewhere in America" is a spoken word poem written by Belissa Escobedo, Rhiannon McGavin and Zariya Allen. The trio is part of Get Lit – Words Ignite, a nationally recognized organization whose mission is to reach teens, stem dropout rates, and spark dramatically increased literacy among youth in Los Angeles. Fusing the power of classic poetry with the spoken word movement, Get Lit places the greatest poets of our time in dialogue with youth. Tara, Erin and Mecca performed an excerpt of the piece in Ayer Memorial Chapel.
