Included are a selection of poems shared by Yazmin Monet Watkins at the 2014 Race & Pedagogy conference. "A Lesson in this Queer African American Woman's History," was the opening poem for Angela Davis' speech and "Love Letter For Puget Sound," was performed at the Youth Speaks, Youth Summit. The other poems were shared at the What Now Is The Word evening performance.
