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.
On the second night of the Slam!, Moten Elementary School put on an inspiring performance about being proud of the area they represent — Southeast DC. It was the first Poetry Slam! showing for Moten, but the poets showed no signs of nervousness in front of the audience of 400-plus people.
