Power of Words

Power of Words

Combining original poetry and hip hop, teaching artist Aitina Fareed Cooke illustrates stories of endurance through hardships.  While sharing personal and creative stories of trauma and triumph, the artist explains the power of words and how writing can be used to heal, motivate, and inspire ourselves and others.

 

This performance explores the effects of many social issues that plague the world, such as bullying, youth violence, homelessness, depression and how the power of words can inform, ignite and inspire change.  Cooke also presents an artistic video that highlights historic leaders and poets and how their words affect others’ lives.
