Slam Team

The BHS slam team’s inaugural year was a pretty amazing whirlwind. After MassLEAP representative Alex Charalambides came to BHS to run a slam workshop in March, we created a team and two months later we were performing at Louder Than a Bomb. Here are the student poems that brought BHS to the LTAB semifinals their first year in the slam:

Lorraine Kanyike “A History of Melanin”

Cat Hoyt “To the Seniors Who Graduate in Two Months”

Aysha Afzal “A Letter to Dannon Light and Fit Yogurt”

TJ Horgan “The Friend Zone”

Tyler Gaffey “Nicotine”

Anastasia Kranz “Bird by Bird”

Group Poem “Stand”
