Good Sista/Bad Sista
In Word Warriors: 35 Women Leaders in the Spoken Word Revolution
Supa Soula Sistas and No You Don't Know Me
Female spoken word artists have become the spokeswomen for a new generation. This demanding oral poetry of the early 21st century has defined a vanguard of lithely muscled voices; women who think and act decisively to create their distinctive and desperately earned realities. The combination of the eminent slam movement and the upsurge of bold underground feminism has created a unique pool of women who verbally challenge society on all fronts.
