This is the first of three short video clips from old footage seen for the first time since 2005. The DC Guerrilla Poetry Insurgency (GPI) is an anti-authoritarian, collaborative, pro-humanity artists' collective incorporating music, rhythm, spoken word, community and resistance.

The poem, "On Becoming Arab," is written and performed by Laila Shereen, who later became known as VJ Um Amel.
