Maya Angelou called Sonia Sanchez "a lion in literature's forest" while spoken word artist Bryonn Bain credits her with paving the way for his generation: "she not only opened the door, she blew off the roof." Sanchez revolutionized poetry by incorporating street language, a unique performance style, and collaborations with jazz musicians. BaddDDD Sonia Sanchez offers unprecedented access to the life, work, and mesmerizing performances of the renowned poet and activist, who describes herself as "a woman with razor blades between my teeth." A leading figure in the Black Arts Movement and an inspiration to today's hip hop spoken word artists, for over 60 years Sanchez has helped redefine American culture and politics as an activist for equity and justice.
