#Watch: This Is A Super Woke Kunta Kinte Inspired Poetry Piece By Arcane

We're ready to 'Run away' too.

Arcane is a 28-year-old spoken word artist from Harare, Zimbabwe who started off performing Poetry in 2014. Since then, his work has been published by the likes of Poetry International (Germany), Zimbolicious Poetry (Zimbabwe), Speak Out (Zim/SA), among others. Although this piece isn’t necessarily ‘brand new’ the video of him performing it’s and it’s charged with a potent message.

“I wrote this piece a couple years ago and just used to perform it during my poetry sets..it’s inspired by Kunta Kinte’s story and how we as people of colour still live under slavery, just under a new system.” – Arcane
