Bury My Clothes is a meditation on violence, race, and the place in art at which they intersect. Art-specifically in oppressed communities-is about survival, Roger Bonair-Agard asserts, and establishing personhood in a world that says you have none. Through poetry, we transform both the world of art and the world itself. Roger Bonair-Agard is a Cave Canem fellow, two-time National Poetry Slam Champion, and author of Tarnish and Masquerade and Gully. He has appeared three times on HBO's Def Poetry Jam and is Co-founder and Artistic Director of the LouderARTS Project in New York.
