One Badass Mom Opens Up About Art, Activism, and Her Vibrant Style
ARTIST POET ACTOR EDUCATOR MENTOR BADASS MOM
Rocking mics since the eighth grade, spoken word poet Jazz Monique Hudson is a fountain of honest truth, raw emotion, and wisdom far beyond her years. The multi-faceted artist is an arts educator and mentor to at-risk teens in her hometown of Oakland, CA, and mother to 9-year-old Nassor (with a little one on the way!). #shero.
We’re super excited about our new format for BAM, where you can experience Jazz’s beautiful poetry and infectious energy as she tells stories in her own words. If you listen to anything today, make it this.
Taking style cues from grandma
Growing up with integrity
Motherhood is revolutionary
Small minds say small things
Oakland is a beautiful place
Poetry as a way out of trouble
What comes from the heart, reaches the heart
