Political poetry makes all the difference
Rebecca Thomas, Halifax's Poet Laureate and SOSA Alumna (MA Social Anthropology 2012, BA 2009) was in the news this week as her powerful performance of a poem at a city council meeting touched hearts and changed minds on the matter of renaming Cornwallis Street and removing the statue of Cornwallis in the South End.
After hearing Rebecca perform her poem, Not Perfect, Councillor Shawn Cleary proposed a motion to form an expert panel to revisit the Cornwallis issue, which had previously been abandoned by the council. This time, the motion was passed.
