Clint Smith — How More Understanding Activates Real Hope

About This Episode

Clint Smith is a poet whose work goes beyond passion and straight into the world of social engagement — his work creatively invites his listeners out of ignorance and into the world of a real and authentic kind of empathy.

Clint Smith is a writer, teacher, and Ph.D. Candidate at Harvard University. He is a 2014 National Poetry Slam champion, an Individual World Poetry Slam Finalist, and author of the poetry collection Counting Descent. His writing has appeared in The New Yorker, The Atlantic, and The Guardian, and he has delivered two popular TED Talks, The Danger of Silence & How to Raise a Black Son in America.

In this conversation, Branden and Clint go in deep into the heart of our work of building a better world coming from an understanding of how the world has already been built.

“Hope stems from an accurate assessment of reality.”

— Clint Smith
