Hakim Bellamy – Albuquerque Poet Laureate


Hakim Bellamy


In 2012, the city of Albuquerque, N.M. chose Hakim Bellamy as its first poet laureate. From politics to hip-hop, Bellamy uses his hard-hitting style to speak to the modern experience while paying homage to American history. He joins us to talk about his first collection of poetry, “Swear.”
