Fire Through Dry Grass

Season 36 Episode 3612 | 1hr 22m 59s

Wearing snapback caps and Air Jordans, the Reality Poets don’t look like typical nursing home residents. In Fire Through Dry Grass, these young, Black and brown disabled artists document their lives on lockdown during Covid, using their poetry and art to underscore the danger and imprisonment they feel. In the face of institutional neglect, they refuse to be abused, confined, and erased.

Aired: 10/29/23 | Expires: 06/30/24
