Poet Samuel Carroll, 17, is a junior at Lincoln Park High School and competed in Louder Than a Bomb 2011 as a member of team Youmedia Chicago.

Forgotten addresses the stereotypes solidified in people’s minds, says Samuel, about Native Americans.  Passion is the vehicle in which this poem is delivered.

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