AC Welcomes Renowned Slam Poet

Amarillo College welcomed in a nationally renowed slam poet Tuesday evening.

Asia was the 2006 Campus Performer of the Year, and has been featured on H.B.O.'s Deaf Comedy Jam.

He performed his message about cancer awareness in front of people who showed up to hear the unique style poetry.

Asia was diagnosed with cancer back in 2006 and instead of competing, which is the norm for slam poetry, he just performed his poetry.
