VIDEO: Lucille Clifton Recites Poem, “Homage To My Hips”

With all the destruction being felt on the East Coast from Hurricane Sandy, we felt the need to keep the mood light on the blog today. 

And with that, we bring you this poem from Lucille Clifton, arguably one of the best poets we’ve ever had the pleasure of reading. She is a 2001 Lifetime Achievement winner, and her poem, “Homage to My Hips” is short, sassy and powerful – just like she was. Perfect for today. Enjoy.
