Spotlight on Nonviolence - Azmera Hammouri-Davis

In this Spotlight on Nonviolence, Katherine Whiteside chats with Azmera Hammouri- Davis, a poet, scholar and activist. She is known for her curriculum Capoetics and her spoken word series Break the Boxes. In this episode, Azmera discusses how she was introduced to Capoetics and the impact it has had on her, the power of using art in all its forms for activism, and she shares a beautiful poem.

If you would like to find out more about Azmera’s work with Capoetics, see her videos on Break the Boxes, or check out Find the Keepers you can visit her website here. You can also check out Freedom and other videos of her poetry on her YouTube channel 

A few years ago we were told that computer algorithms would serve us. Now we have learned that we serve them. So, we are compelled to ask you to “please like and subscribe” to our new YouTube channel so that others will be introduced to the work you already support.
