Storyteller Series | Aja Monet

I'm a story teller - whether its plays, poetry or paintings. Stories can connect us, change us, and save us. That's why I'm beginning a new series here at La Maison Boheme called Storyteller Series. Today, I'm kicking it all off with one of my favorite poets, Aja Monet.



Aja Monet is an internationally recognized poet, song writer, and human rights activist. Aja is a Brooklyn native of Cuban-Jamaican descent and lives in Miami where she runs Smoke Signals, a music studio. I've included two videos below of Aja sharing her work. But you can find more of her spoken word videos HERE. She will change you.


 


And here's a gorgeous video of Aja reading her poem "What I've Learned":
