Season 1 / ep 5. the master's tools
ft. Sunni Hutton
Sunni Hutton and Treasure Shields Redmond are poets and educators. Treasure has been impressed by Sunni's leadership in Socialist Alternative and knew that Sunni would be able to speak about "The Master's Tools" with respect to politics, poems, and education. Join us for a kitchen table chat about growing up poor and black in Kinloch in St. Louis County, attending Vanderbilt and navigating Teach for America, and how she decided to stay in St. Louis to do the work.
Educator. Poet. Lover. Sunni Hutton is a 3 time slam winning poet and published author.
Her work has been featured in Red Wedge Magazine known for sparking the revolutionary imagination. Sunni's beginnings with writing started as a way to cope with a tumultuous childhood--St. Louis raised and Vanderbilt educated, she returned home to grow in life, love and relationships with the city. Some of that growth includes self-published book titled "The Art of Hurting", leading workshops at Harris-Stowe State University, UM- St. Louis' Crooked Room Conference, storytelling for St. Louis Public Radio, and coordinating a series of lectures around political ideology and unjust capitalist systems.
