Light-Skinned, Live Spoken Word @ Nuyorican


Hello, hello, hey, hello, hello (Erykah Badu voice) 👋🏾

It’s been awhile since I’ve shared my thoughts and life experiences, thank you for bearing with me through this journey. A mental break every now and then is much needed to remind us of why we’re here:

to share our gifts, to create, to love.

I’ll be getting back to the blog very soon as I explore my hometown of Boston with a fresh pair of eyes. In the meantime, here is a video of me performing one of my original and most popular spoken word pieces, “Light-Skinned,” at Nuyorican Poets Cafe.

The only movement that counts is forward, even if it’s baby steps. Let’s keep striving and keep building, our dreams are calling.

With love,

Mel Chanté

Our minds + vibes matter y'all. Let's keep ours right together. Plus poetry updates + more!
