Intermedia Arts says
BaddDDD Sonia Sanchez is an inspirational filmic portrait of the poet and activist’s life and work. A seminal figure in the Black Arts Movement of the 1960s, Sonia Sanchez has harnessed her gift for words as a champion against racism, sexism and war, fusing art and activism over the past six decades. As a pioneer of spoken word poetry, her influence on hip-hop is fundamental.

"I want to tell people how I became this woman with razor blades between her teeth.”
- Sonia Sanchez

"Sonia Sanchez is a lion in literature's forest. When she writes, she roars."
-Maya Angelou

The prodigious Sanchez has been on the front lines of art and activism for 60 years—teaching, writing, performing, protesting. She was a pioneer of the Black Arts Movement, and fought to establish the first university Black Studies program in the country.

But, her commitment to justice for all people has come at a cost. This film captures the breadth of Sanchez's rich and often unsettled life. This performance-packed film features appearances by Questlove, Talib Kweli, Amiri Baraka, Nikki Giovanni, Ursula Rucker, Ruby Dee, Haki Madhubuti, Imani Uzuri, Bryonn Bain, Jessica Care Moore, Yasiin Bey (Mos Def) and more.
