Pamela Sneed on Poetry as Language and Intervention

“Part of my political work is to continuously assert the names and the work of black lesbian and gay poets.” OoRS caught up with Pamela Sneed, a New York-based poet, performance artist, teacher, and activist, during the Occupy Town Square gathering in Fort Greene Park, which took place on Sunday, March 25th, 2012. A small but resolute crowd braved wind and rain to listen to her talk and read poems.
