Last week I encouraged folks to support artists by going to their performances, buying their works, and letting them know you had their backs. So as I walked out of the Elliott Bay Book Company today, and this man asked if I liked poetry, I realized that this was one of the moments I was talking about.
What I didn't realize was how powerful his recital would be. He asked for a word. I gave him 'resistance.' So here's Anthony Dickerson live on the curb outside the Elliott Bay Book Company at 1521 10th Ave Capitol Hill Seattle.
