Denice Frohman (aka “Ms .Misconception”) is an international poet, lyricist and educator, whose works explore multi-culturalism and the “in-betweeness” that exists in us all. She currently serves as a mentor and director of programs and external affairs for the Philly Youth Poetry Movement. As the co-founder of the Philadelphia Youth Slam League, Frohman also teaches weekly workshops as part of an effort to have a spoken-word team in every high school. As I’ve written before, one of my pet peeves is people littering. So imagine my joy when, halfway through the interview, I realized the poet I was speaking to was none other than the Philadelphia spokeswoman for the “UnLitter Us” campaign. You know, the gal in the ad with the conga player in an empty room imploring us to be beautiful. It was an early Christmas present for me.
