Last night on Spectrum News, they showcased a conversation with former Get Lit Player and current United States National Youth Poet Laureate, Salome Agbaroji. In the interview, they discussed the inspiration behind her powerful poetry and her experience as the new Youth Poet Laureate Get Lit Founder and CEO, Diane Luby Lane, also appeared and discussed the work and revolutionary model of Get Lit’s programming, which Salome attributes much of her success to.
