Craig Burton introduced me to the poet Taylor Mali. Wonderful!

In the following clip, Taylor Mali, a teacher and poet, recites a poem of his in which he is being challenged by a lawyer during a dinner party.

  1. I had been running a high school theatre program in Texas for the last 7 years. I wished I saw this when I was back in Texas. However, I’m teaching college in New York now and Mali’s passion speaks to both my historic and present listening as an educator…

  2. If you search for him on YouTube, you’ll find other examples of his poetry that are worthwhile, and young people picking up his gavel. I find him quite wonderful.
