                from dorothy's gallery / Added

                Poète, slameuse, performeuse… Aja Monet a non seulement un parcours brillant dès ses premiers pas sur scène mais aussi une démarche profondément engagée : droits des femmes, situation des jeunes dans les banlieues américaines, politique de Barack Obama et lutte contre les discriminations sont ses chevaux de bataille. Le 23 mars 2013, à dorothy’s gallery, American Center for the Arts, elle se produit lors d’une performance exceptionnelle et inédite.

                      TheArtTrade explores a new series called "The ArtWorks Collection" focusing on a particular piece of work produced by a particular artist. In this "Episode 1" we look at New York native poet Aja Monet and her poetry book titled "The Black Unicorn Sings." Note from Director - Cam Be: While she was residing in Chicago Aja took me for a walk through the Hyde Park neighborhood where she was living. We found time to stop at a famed Chicago bookstore O'Gara & Wilson Ltd, which was featured in a scene of the 1997 film 'Love Jones'. While there Aja read excerpts from both her book 'The Black Unicorn Sings' and her personal journal. In this piece I wanted to show the different sides of her personality as both a strong, gifted, intellectual woman and her fun loving kind mannered sense of humor. She is one of the definitive poets of our generation, it was a pleasure capturing her gift. - Cam Be Produced By: Jennifer Linsday Sullivan Cam Be Aja Monet Shot & Edited By: Cam Be A Camovement Soundtrack: Miguel Atwood-Ferguson & Carlos Nino - Suite for Ma Dukes
