Kenwood Academy’s Epic Sound Slam Poetry Team

This team piece is performed by Kenwood Academy’s Epic Sound, comprised of poets: Ashaki Howard, 17, a senior; Kristen Turner, 16, a junior; Rachel Smith, 17, a junior; and Slayton Goodman, 17, a junior.

A Crisis Tale is a social commentary on the subject of the ACT. It was performed several times throughout the Festival and received tremendous praise by all who heard it.

Though everyone knows the points are not the point – the point is the poetry – congratulations to Kenwood Academy’s Epic Sound, who was chosen as one the four Teams advancing to the Final round of the 2011 competition which celebrated over 600 young writers.
