Last week I attended The Story Conference, an incredible gathering of creatives that takes place every September in Chicago. There were several incredible speakers…Bob Goff, Erwin McManus, and Anne Lamott to name a few. But one of the highlights for me was seeing a young and incredibly talented spoken word artist, Micah Bournes, perform with the band that I can’t stop listeing to, All Sons & Daughters (don’t forget to buy The Longing EP).
Micah’s poem (yes, I clarified that spoken word pieces can be called poems) “Who Broke Africa?” is one that will leave you questiong what poverty really looks like and the steps that we should take to ‘fix’ it. Here’s a video of a live performance “Who Broke Africa?” during last year’s The Justice Conference. Take a few minutes to watch it, it’s POWERFUL.
Speaking of conferences, conference season seems to be in full swing and I’m hitting up several of them. Please let me know in the comments if you will be at Catalyst East, Resurgence, or Allume. I’ll be at each and would LOVE to connect!
Have a great weekend!
