Amid all the controversy about that “thug” rapper Common and “racist” Jill Scott performing at the White House last night, there was still an actual event that took place. Amazing, huh?
The Poetry Event was a success, featuring not only Common and Scott, but other renowned poets as well.
Here is the full video of some of the poetry performances. Check for Jill Scott at the 22:22 mark. Common, most likely for music licensing reasons, was left out of the the official White House video above. However, you can see a clip of his performance below.
Sidenote: Yessssss for Jill Scott bringing her MacBook Pro on stage with her! #TeamApple
