poetry files: episode 1 - Diamon Fisher

La Liga is launching a new video series titled "poetry files." Through this project we hope to highlight the work of Latinxs/Latin Americans/Xicanxs that write poetry.

For this first installment we got the opportunity to hang out with Diamon Fisher, a Baltimorean afro latina poet of Puerto Rican and Black ancestry. We strolled around Charles Village and hung out at the Baltimore Museum of Art. In this video she recites her poem "The Music Room" and tells the story behind it.
