Highlighting our youth poets: Tubman Elementary School

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 first night of the Slam!, Tubman Elementary --- performing for a large throng of supporters in its own neighborhood -- spoke powerfully about how "music makes me happy ... music makes me peaceful ... it takes me away from the deceitful." Then Noami took center stage and delivered a poignant poem about being a proud Hispanic.

Check out Tubman representing on stage!
