Caribbean Spoken Word: Crystal Bynoe

Crystal BynoeYoung women face an immense amount of pressure when it comes to being “liked” and “accepted,” by their peers, by the opposite sex, and by society in general.

The young woman who chooses to dress modestly is called a “prude” and “boring,” while the young woman who dares to wear makeup or show some skin is called a “thot” or regarded as “easy.”


The only solution to this problem is to stay true to one’s self and to stick to one’s convictions.

Poet Crystal Bynoe of St. Vincent and the Grenadines brings this point home in the spoken word piece entitled “He Calls Me Beautiful.”
