NOTE: Each week, we are featuring a performance from the 2nd Annual Inspired Art Gala, held May 18 at the Corcoran Gallery of Art! During the Gala, seven individual poet-athletes and one team put on tremendous performances for the audience of DC SCORES supporters. Learn more about the annual Gala on our website.
Akilae S. of Tubman Elementary School wasn't new to the big stage, having performed just a month earlier at the America SCORES National Poetry SLAM! He showed his aplomb for the dramatic, reciting his hit poem "The Speech."
Check out Akilae's performance!
