Dominique Christina, champion slam poet| December 24, 2014
The F Word airs powerful works by writer, performer, educator, activist, Dominique Christina.
She holds four national titles from the three years she has been competing in poetry slam, including the 2012 and 2014 Women of the World Slam Champion and 2011 National Poetry Slam Champion. She is presently the only person to have held two national titles at one time and the only poet in history to win the Women of the World Poetry Championship twice! Her work is greatly influenced by her family's legacy in the Civil Rights Movement. She describes her work as a celebration of her reality as a woman of colour.
The F Word creates feminist media outside of the mainstream and seeks to give space to alternative voices and perspectives. We define feminism broadly in order to leave space for debates and differences within the collective and to engage with communities in and around Coast Salish Territories. Our members conceptualize feminism as a lens, a model and practice that works to address and dismantle hierarchies of oppression; guides a personal practice of courage, compassion and connection; and an entry-point for anti-oppressive ways of living.
