…like Joel McKerrow’s video which went up on Youtube on Monday. The video is of one part of a much longer poem. It is broken into sections, with each section apologising for a different “part” of Joel. In this video, he apologises for the white part of himself.
It’s a truly beautiful piece, which I first saw performed at the Centre for Poetics and Justice launch. Joel is so earnest, so honest, this confessional will bring tears to your eyes. And the video does it justice, though I’m unsure who’s responsible for the video itself. I can’t say much more about it; watch it – you’ll understand.
