At this year’s Urbanworld Film Festival poet, professor and co-founder of the Black Arts Movement Sonia Sanchez screened her documentary Shaking Loose Memories . The film is directed by Jamal Joseph and combines interviews with Sanchez and performances of her poems by Amiri Baraka, T.C Carson and others.

TheUrbandaily was given a few minutes with this living legend on the red carpet and she had words of encouragement for today’s poets and MCs.

“I am completely always in love with Rakim, Talib, Mos Def and Ursula Rucker and a whole generation that have continued what we were about because they do things in a positive fashion.”
