Spoken Word Artist Kelly Zen-Yie Tsai’s Performances

Kelly Zen-Yie Tsai is a Chicago-born, Brooklyn-based Chinese Taiwanese American spoken word artist who fights for cultural pride and survival through how she spits and how she lives.  As a teenager, Kelly developed a passion for spoken word at the birthplace of the international poetry slam movement, the Uptown Poetry Slam in Chicago.  She also appeared as a series regular on PBS’ “Sneak Previews” and wrote weekly for the Chicago Tribune as a teen movie critic.
