This week we spoke with Eboni Curry, the children’s librarian at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library. Curry is a fan of spoken word events, and “as a result, a majority of what I listen to these days are local poets, musicians and producers.”

“Spoken word poetry isn’t all snaps and obscure themes. Sometimes you need to talk about real life...”

Her playlist follows.

Stevie Wonder, “I Just Called to Say I Love You

Anthony Chidi Njoku, “The Good Fight

Erykah Badu, “Jump Up in the Air and Stay There

Cathy and Marcy , “It’s the Beatbox”

Björk, “Hyperballad

Marvin Sapp, “Praise Him in Advance
