This clip from “The Queen Latifah Show” features young women from the organization Get Lit, a California-based program that works to increase teen literacy through spoken-word and classic poetry.

In an incredible— no really, INCREDIBLE — spoken-word performance on “The Queen Latifah Show,” teenagers Belissa Escobedo, Rhiannon McGavin, and Zariya Allen spoke bravely about American issues that women and minorities face every day. 

After you watch the video you will understand why their poem has received an overwhelming amount of support.
