Independence means freedom of speech to poet Steve Connell. This poem is a declaration of independence. Connell is the Hollywood and LA Champion (2002 and 2003 respectively), as well as National Champion at the National Poetry Slam Competition (2003), and the winner of the 2003 New Word Series National Poetry Slam. His work has been featured on such diverse media/stage outlets as ABC World News, MSNBC's Hardball, Good Morning America, HBO's Def Poetry, Showtime's Crossover, MTV's World AIDS Festival, BET's Lyric Cafe, Artisan Film's Belly DVD, Oprah Winfrey's celebration of Maya Angelou's 75th birthday, and several national radio spots and spoken word tours, most notably Declare Yourself, where he helped register over a million voters. As an actor his feature film debut was a supporting lead in The Beat, which premiered at the 2003 Sundance Film Festival. ACLU commissioned Connell and Sekou Tha Misfit to create a new work for them.
