Pratt Slam Sunday: Jasmine Mans
Jasmine Mans is my mans! Corny? Well unfortunately I don’t have the skillful wordplay that this poet was blessed with! Jasmine is a recent graduate of the University of Wisconsin where she received her BA in African-American Studies but began her craft as a middle-school student in her hometown of Newark, New Jersey. Her work speaks on issues in hip-hop, issues in our communities, and struggles of the heart. Check out 3 of her powerful pieces (Footnotes For Kanye, You Gone Get This Work, I Know You Didnt Mean to Kill Him) below and sound-off in the comment section!
