Slam Poets Destroy Jewish/Muslim Stereotypes In One Incredible Performance

Watch the two young slam poets destroying awful stereotypes in one amazing performance.

Two aspiring poets, Aminah Iro and Hannah Halpern, competed at the Brave New Voices festival in Chicago last year.

The two girls, who belong to different religious sects, perform an incredibly inspiring slam poem about the religious stereotyping they face from their own and other communities.

"We've both looked discrimination in the eye," they say, drawing cheers and applause from the awe-struck crowd.

Brave New Voices is a growing network of over 70 organizations which is “committed to building safe spaces that challenge young people to develop and present the power of their voices”.
