Editorial Reviews

Following the landmark success of the acclaimed HBO series Russell Simmons Presents Brave New Voices, this all-new, one-hour HBO special presentation from executive producers Russell Simmons and Stan Lathan celebrates youthful excitement, creative expression, and inspired stage presentations. Brave New Voices 2010 captures the exhilarating verbal adrenaline of the freewheeling Grand Slam Finals showdown between four teams — Denver, Albuquerque, the California Bay Area and New York City — all performing in front of a raucous audience at L.A.’s Saban Theatre. Hosted by rap superstar Common and Image Award-winning actress Rosario Dawson, the talented artists and emerging leaders compete before a celebrity panel of judges who will ultimately crown the Brave New Voices 2010.

Special Features

Reflections on the Finals - Conversations with the judges & team coaches

Sacrificial Poems - never before seen poems

I think I ordered the 2009 DVD of Brave New Voices--Hawaii won. Friday is poetry day in my class. I was reading poetry written by teenage boys, and decided to supplement and change up from reading to switching between the two editions that I possess. My kids are so fired up, I may have to start a club next year...No I do not spit, but am very confident I can help some rising stars make their mark in performance "spoken word." It is sad at times to see how the issues of life impact young people, but I'm certain the healing that occurs through this media is worth the pain of the experience. Keep it coming!!!

The kids on each team have amazing stories & their performance reflect the seriousness that they have about it.

I actually did cry while watching some of the poems, which is always a good sign. Poetry should move you in some way.

Definitely a must-watch for all poetry-heads like me, along with all other creative writers! :)

I watched these during the original run and purchased it to show to kids in therapeutic groups. These young voices give me hope for our future because they are expressing hopes and dreams and their voices speak truth. And I'm a 61 yo grandmother!
