Video: Spoken-Word Poet Jazz Hudson



Twenty-two-year-old spoken-word artist Jazz Hudson has been rocking Oakland mics since the eighth grade. From her first writer's workshop at the West Oakland Library — where her father sent her to "curb that mouth of hers" — she has performed from the streets of Oakland and Richmond to the national stage, often with her three-year-old son Nassor at her side.
