Suheir Hammad

I hadn’t heard of Suheir Hammad until today, when I read an interview with both her and Gloria Steinem, which can be found here: http://nymag.com/anniversary/40th/50664/

Suheir is a feminist Palestinian American poet and activist. The above youtube video is a poem she wrote in the aftermath of 9/11. Look at the people’s faces as she’s speaking. Listen to this without other distractions in the background; it is a powerful piece.
