Darius Simpson and Scout Bostley begin to speak into their individual microphones -- but then they stop, switch mics and start talking again.
In the video below from the 2015 College Unions Poetry Slam Invitational, the two Eastern Michigan University students perform their spoken word poem "Lost Voices"and discuss white privilege, reproductive rights, male privilege and dating while black.
But instead of telling stories from their own lives, Bostley and Simpson tell one another's experiences. The result is a powerful commentary on white privilege and male privilege, respectively.
