Beatfreeks' performance poetry marks genocide

The event featured this piece inspired by Carl Sealeaf’s trip to Srebrenica. He was part of a Beatfreeks delegation that travelled to Bosnia-Herzegovina on our ‘Lessons from Srebrenica’ programme of educational visits. The group witnessed at first-hand the testimony of survivors and Mothers who lost loved ones in the Srebrenica genocide.

Poetry Jam is a free event on the first Thursday of every month at Urban Coffee Company in Birmingham. BeatfreeksTV (BFTV) aims to promote and develop emerging talent in front and behind of the camera – creating a space for young creative people to speak up and have their say.
