Who says poetry is dead? In Chicago, the world's largest youth poetry slam brings hundreds of Chicago kids together to face off. A documentary called "Louder Than A Bomb" follows the kids. We speak with two of them: Nova Venerable, who represented Oak Park River Forest High, and Lamar Jorden, of Steinmetz High School.

This segment aired on November 4, 2010.
