When these four teens were trying to come up with something to perform in Louder Than a Bomb, a youth poetry festival that reaches teens through after-school programs, they took their task seriously. Through their spoken-word performance of “Hide Your Schools, Hide Your Homes, Hide Your Children, Cause He’s Wrecking it All,” they unabashedly slammed Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel with a passion you can both see and hear.
Mayor Emanuel, who is Obama’s former Chief of Staff and whom many believe has his sights set on the 2016 presidential race, overwhelmingly won his current position in 2011. However, he has since faced criticism from a large number of the Chicagoans who voted for him, including many African Americans who are disappointed with his failure to fix Chicago’s rampant crime problem, as well as several school closings and consolidations.
