"Haters," journeys through key historical periods and contains personal accounts from victims as well as interviews with prominent activists and theorists. Featuring spoken word by Suheir Hammad (currently performing in "Def Poetry Jam," the hot new cutting edge presentation of performance poetry on Broadway.)
