Khary Jackson - “How to Break a Bedpost in 1960”

  “(We) ain’t nonviolent just ‘cuz of a Doctor King Speech,

    it’s these bodies, these hips, this bondin’

    that keeps you from killing a mother fuckah!” 

This video was shot at Soap Boxing’s Annual Cirque Du So’Drunk. A summer slam that focuses on the wonders of alcohol,  the lighter side of spoken word poetry, and Hieu Nguyen playing backup on the bicycle bell.  

Khary is a two-time National Poetry Slam Champ, Cave Canem Fellow, Author, Playwright, Musician and all around renaissance man.
