For poet Sonia Sanchez, writing is both a personal and political act. She emerged as a seminal figure in the 1960s Black Arts Movement, raising her voice in the name of black culture, civil rights and women's liberation. She was an early champion of the spoken word and is among the earliest poets to have incorporated urban black English into her poetry. Sonia Sanchez is best known for 17 books of poetry that explore a wide range of global and humanist themes, particularly the struggles and triumphs of women and people of color. In "BaddDDD Sonia Sanchez," Sanchez's life unfolds in a documentary rich with readings and jazz-accompanied performances of her work. Enjoy the film produced by Barbara Attie and Janet Goldwater followed by a Q & A led by Nzadi Keita.
