Wanda Coleman: The Unofficial Poet Laureate of Los Angeles
Poet Wanda Coleman was called "the unofficial poet laureate of Los Angeles" and the "high priestess of poetry." But she told Arts Alive in 2010 that her favorite moniker was "LA Blues Woman." Coleman died last month. In tribute to this incredible writer and voice of Los Angeles, we'd like to share this collection of clips from our last interview with Coleman, including her performances of several of her poems.
