Spoken word poem shares the deadly legacy of “400 Years” of sugar

Spoken word artist Té Speight, just released this brand-new video short.

Té’s powerful poem “400 Years” delivers a truth-to-power message from his personal experience and perspective.

Please take a minute to watch it. If you love it like I do, please pass it along to others! Here are those links for FacebookTwitter, and YouTube.

The piece offers a fresh and unique take on the infamous history of sugar as a commodity, and speaks directly about the soda industry’s aggressive marketing tactics toward the Black community.
