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”

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

TJ Horgan “The Friend Zone”
