"Because She Walked" is the poem that Dara E. will perform for the 2008 season of "Speak! – A Poetry Revolution for Television" on June 28th from 6pm at the Renegades panyard. The piece dedicated to Ida Marie Guerra, Dara's grandmother, talks about the sacrifices made by Ida to pave the way for her family. This the second time that Dara will be appearing on the series.
Dara was last seen performing her poetry at the Bush Baby Cafe in Bedford Stuyvesant, New York where her work was well received. She shared the stage with Poet Laureate, Eintou Springer, Trinidad and Tobago poet Mervyn Taylor, talk show host and noted New York poet Louis Reyes Rivera, and others from the New York poetry scene.
According to the "Speak!" Facebook site, "the popular series highlights the lyrical, smart, hilarious and truthful art form in an edgy, sexy, visually sumptuous format – with artiste interviews, brilliant lighting and raw, hard poetry".
