Dean Atta: I Am Nobody's Nigger [Poem]


"I Am Nobody's Nigger," a poem-gone-viral dedicated to the 1993 murder of South London teenager Stephen Lawrence.

Written and recorded by spoken word artist Dean Atta on his iPhone last week was instantaneously being passed on by listeners and popping up on on UK blogs, leading to coverage in several major British newspaper outlets.

The poem was inspired by the Stephen Lawrence case, an ongoing major news story in the UK since the early '90s. In 1993, the South London teenager was murdered in a racist attack, and it was only last week, 18 years later, that his killers were finally brought to justice.
