Watch: 'At 13', A Spoken Word Anti-Bullying Performance by Kenneth Morrison


Dean Hamer and Joe Wilson, the filmmakers behind the documentary Out in the Silence (I posted about them previously here), produced this powerful spoken word piece from Kenneth Morrison.

At13 They write, in the HuffPost:

"This heart wrenching spoken word piece by Kevin Morrison, filmed in our home base in Washington D.C., lays bare what it feels like for a 13-year-old to be rejected by his family, ridiculed by his church, and called the f*ggot by his peers. To feel like he was dead on the inside. To believe that there was no other way out than to take a knife to his veins."

  4. I saw this on Current Tv awhile ago. One of the best spoken word poems I've heard. Everyone needs to see this.

    "Imma fight for what's right, until the night that it change!"

  6. It does give one hope. I am definitely one of the tired ones. There's a candlelight vigil going on in my city tonight for the victims of bullying and I can't bear to go. Because I'm tired. I don't want to stand in the park and cry with a candle and a Dixie cup. I want to riot in the streets.
