Changing the World One Word at a Time

Listen to Belissa Escobedo, Rhiannon McGavin, and Zariya Allen, members of the Get Lit organization, who are determined to change the world, one word at a time. In this performance of “Somewhere in America,” they open for singer John Legend at the Hollywood Bowl. The poem calls to attention the kind of information passed along unintentionally in classrooms, and addresses some hard truths and dark topics based on personal experiences. “I think poetry is the best way to express emotions…” McGavin says, “Its an amazing way to help people, especially teens.”
