Media Rewound: Danez Smith

Last year’s National Book finalist is the subject of this week’s media rewound. From his chapbook Black Movie, here is Danez reading via Button Poetry Live in 2016.  Black Movie was released between his debut Insert Boy (Yes Yes Books) and last year’s Don’t Call Us Dead (Graywolf Press). More than a stop gap release between two collections, Black Movie has a focused intensity with a lens directed at pop culture. Enjoy.
