NOTE: Each week, we are featuring a school's performance from the 14th Annual Poetry Slam!. During the two-night culminating event of the fall season, each of the 27 schools DC SCORES serves had the opportunity to perform original poems and songs in front of their peers, families and community members.
The defending champion Raymond poet-athletes echoed a theme of the Slam!, performing a poem about civil rights. "When people march, they do it to be free," the poet-athletes said in unison on stage. That was just a highlight of their performance that capped off the first night of the event.
