Nikky Finney Reads ‘Flare’ Dedicated to #MarissaAlexander

When we conceptualized the idea to ask supporters of Marissa to send video submissions of themselves reading Nikky Finney’s beautiful poem ‘Flare,’ our deepest wish was that Ms. Finney would also send us a submission.

We wrote to her and asked if she’d be willing to participate in this month-long action intended to ‘keep Marissa in mind’ throughout domestic violence awareness month. Ms. Finney said YES!!!

Today, we are honored to share her reading of the poem that she wrote and dedicated to Marissa. We are over the moon. Please watch and share the video far and wide. And as importantly, please send us your video submission at freemarissachicago@gmail.com. Thank you Ms. Finney for your support of Marissa!
