“Accents” by Denice Frohman

A native New Yorker and former Women of the World Poetry Slam Champion, Denice Frohman writes about the intersection of race, gender, and sexuality. This poem, “Accents,” is a beautiful ode to her mother’s Puerto Rican accent. Not only does this performance pair well with resources that discuss language prejudice, but it can also serve as an introduction to the Nuyorican Cafe performance venue, which is an amazing New York City resource.
