Episode 14 - Sister Outsider Poetry

Sister Outsider Poetry is an award-winning duo representing some of the top performance poets in the world, Dominique Christina and Denice Frohman. Their tour marks the first time that two Women of the World Poetry Slam Champions have paired up. They have appeared on 10 national poetry slam finals stages and have seven championships collectively. 

Inspired by the life and work of Audre Lorde, they write and perform their "otherness" into the center and use spoken word as a tool for social change. What they bring to a performance will either rip you wide open or stitch you back up, depending on where you stand in relation to the dark side of the American Dream. 

Every so often, you run across someone who changes you forever. For the rest of your life, you will be able to think about yourself, the continuity of your lived experience, as existing in two distinct halves: the time before you met person "X" and the time after. If we are lucky, we meet several people like this along the journey. For us at OTB, Sister Outsider Poetry fits this description perfectly. And then some. 

Spend a few minutes with them and we think you will see why.
