BaddDDD Sonia Sanchez

D: Barbara Attie, Janet Goldwater, Sabrina Schmidt Gordon | USA | 91 min | Arkansas Premiere

A performance-packed film about the renowned poet and activists contribution to the world of poetry, her singular place in the Black Arts Movement, and her role in American culture over the last 50+ years.  Deemed 'a lion in literature's forest' by Maya Angelou, Sonia confronts all forms of injustice, exploring a wide range of global and humanist themes, particularly the struggles and triumphs of people of color in America. Featured appearances by Questlove, Talib Kweli, Ursula Rucker, Ruby Dee, Mos Def and more. Sonia Sanchez “offers hope and heroes,” and a liberating vision of redemption, compassion and self-respect.
