I am curating a YouTube playlist of songs and poems that evoke the history, culture, and resilience of this country.
It’s a selective list and I want it to be devoid of politicization. I want to include pieces that make me laugh, cry, or think.
The list currently has five videos. It will grow over time.
“Somewhere in America” is in the list. This poem was written and performed by three teenagers: Rhiannon McGavin, Zariya Allen, and Belissa Escobedo. It’s emotional and it’s real.
