Vanessa Hidary shouts verses of spoken word poetry focusing on popular social issues. She has appeared on HBO's Def Comedy Jam. I was there at Woodrow Wilson Plaza shooting the event for ESPN Magazine, and focusing on the Washington Wizards Basketball player Etan Thomas. Thomas is also a spoken word artist. He seems like a really decent person too. He does a lot of work with the community, and tries to raise young peoples' awarness of the importance of education and making the right decisions with their lives.
I need to move out of my place at the end of the month. I found a couple places ... one on Corcoran St., too small though. It would be nice if I could find a place near a Metro subway, but anywhere in North West or South East close to downtown would be convenient. If you know of a place please let me know ... thanks.
