Danez Smith

Danez Smith

(United States, )

A poet whom everyone should not only read, but also hear and see.

Convincing, powerful and funny, Danez Smith's poetry speaks to the experience of being a black, queer and poz body in today's America. Always personal, while at the same time political and topical, Smith's work tackles racism, identity, inequality and sexuality. Smith's experience in the spoken-word and slam-poetry scenes ensures that their poetry comes alive on both page and stage, and their persuasive performances often go viral online. A poet who everyone should not only read, but also hear and see.
