Terisa and Storm Speak on Race

This piece by Terisa features another spoken word artist by the name of Storm. In this poem Terisa and Storm join together to eloquently deliver a lesson on race and how it is addressed in the lives of individuals of color. They start out the poem by discussing racial events that took place on various University of California campuses. These particular events were specifically directed to Black students but it was a message that also impacted the lives of other racial minorities. They draw the similarities to the way race and racism are viewed today as compared to in the past, and state that it is not much different. This poem is a touching piece because it forces listeners to face the problem of race and racial injustices, and it addresses all individuals of color, not just African Americans and Latios/ Latinas.
