THE ALL BLACK PENGUIN SPEAKS
By Roger Bonair-Agard

Editor’s Note: I had the pleasure of seeing Roger Bonair-Agard read at a recent poetry salon, and I was blown away. This man is an incredibly talented poet and a dedicated human rights advocate. Influenced by everything from hip hop to steel drum music, from American Culture to Caribbean, from racial tensions to human sexuality, this passionate performer is an inspirational boundary-pusher who schools poets on both the page and the stage. Keep an eye out for his forthcoming book, which is sure to be epic.

    A simpy fantastic writer and really powerful and important voice in this country; I’d like to hear him everywhere. Here is another great speech by Mr. Bonair: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b8AjUGmyNfA

    How cool to hear the poetry read rather than reading it! I think it would be great to have poetry presented this way here every so often. Not sure how feasible that is but I like it 🙂

    I found his poetry to be very funny. Didn’t feel like I was listening to a poem but more of a comedy routine with meaningful points, as most good comedic routines have I suppose.

    Wow, mother-fucker! This dude is beyond awesome and gorgeous, too! The art of spoken word definitely serves here.
