The 2010 ABQ Unidos youth poetry slam team is the sixth youth poetry slam team chosen to represent Albuquerque at the Brave New Voices international youth poetry slam in Los Angeles, Calif. in July.
The ABQ Unidos youth team — city champion Reed Bobroff, Eva Crespin, Tescia Schell, Khalid Binsunni, Miguel “Mickey” Figueroa — was chosen at the ABQ Youth Slam-off on April 10, 2010 at the Nat. Hispanic Cultural Center. It’s members have all been involved in the poetry slam scene for the last few years. Reed, Khalid and Miguel, along with assistant coach Tracey Dahl are all members of the Duke City Youth Poetry Collective, which produces Slam Aztlan, Albuquerque’s only under-21 poetry slam. Slam Aztlan happens every third Saturday of the month at Warehouse 508, ABQ’s youth art space.
