Poetry at the White House: Videos.

Poetry, Spoken Word, Music: are Arts a Matter more important than Polls & War-making?

Sharing our QOTD via Esperanza Spalding, I tripped across these videos from two years back tonight.

There’s something powerful about taking the time to watch this…reimagining, rather re-seeing our White House and government as a vehicle for joy, arts, getting loose, feeling hope and love…rather than as a place for managing polls and wars and conventionally “important things.”

I hope you’ll enjoy:
