POETRY BY ASH’IZ THA POET
“Metropolis” by Rob Bell. Dynamic scenes of Philadelphia set to voicemails tell the story of a photographer coping with leaving home. 5 minutes.
“Burning Cradle of Liberty” by Andre Taylor. On May 13, 1985, Philadelphia police dropped a bomb on a home in the 6200 block of Osage Avenue that was occupied by MOVE members. Eleven of the 13 people inside burned to death while two people, including Ramona Africa, escaped. This piece documents the events from that day from the perspective of Ramona Africa and journalist Kitty Caparella. I learned much through research about this incident in American history and summed it up in this short video. 14 minutes.
“Five O’Clock Shadow” by Sangeeta Agrawal. Five O’Clock Shadow, is the story of an Indian-American mother who is the victim of racial abuse. Her worst fear rises to the surface and for the first time ever, she asks the question: Do we really belong here? 7 minutes.
