The 2nd season of the segment will be a special show where we remove the conversation around spoken word and listen to the words of conversation and enrichment. This show was produced with a pure perspective on the intent of spoken word and poetry. No interviews – no live guests – no Q&As – no microphones – and no cameras. The language arts are intended to “speak to us” through the message of the artist. The show aired an entire 60-minutes of continuous spoken word and poetry productions by many leaders of the art. As we listen to the artists among us – the well known and the yet-to-become well known, we should listen to the message and the spirit behind their productions. In actuality, there is no need for interviews if we listen to the life of their hearts through poetry/spoken word and music. The best interview we can give many of the artists who touch our lives is an interpersonal interview with ourselves after we have allowed ourselves to ponder their messages. At the end of each piece, just before the next message begins, ask yourself – “How did that message challenge my thoughts and encourage my well-being?” The answers to that question is what I believe drives each poet and spoken word artist to continue to share their gifts for their own individual (and collective)purpose in artistry. The second season of “The Segment” celebrates many of the leaders and pioneers of the arts who touch and change lives. This broadcast included productions from the following artists.
