“Without poetry, I don’t know who I would be,” says Rhame.
In this episode, Rhame performs the poem “The Color of My Soul”, a poem through which Rhame uncovered aspects of who she is in the world. It’s a topic she uses to engage young people, who she says, need to know who they are to navigate the world around around them. Words help.
Listen to this City Builder, and share her joy for writing, performing, and caring for the people sharing the neighborhood and the world around her.
