Spoken word artist Alix Olson calls her voice her “weapon of choice” and her powerful work contains equal doses of humor, anger, and compassion. A champion slam poet, Olson introduced the urban literary genre to Europe at Rotterdam’s Poetry International Festival. As an activist, she’s been honored for her commitment to social justice in Washington DC. At the same time, a conservative women’s organization put her on their list of Ten Most Dangerous Women in America.
