Sisters Aries Jordan, 24, and Latoya Carter, 19, joined the Post News Hour on the radio with host David Scott.  
 The two young women talked about current events and their experiences of reading poetry with “Academy of da Corner Readers Theatre” to young people at Alameda County Juvenile Hall.
The sisters sang and read poetry from their self-published books. Jordan read “A Letter to the Elders” from her book “Journey to Womanhood.”  She sang a song about “shedding,” which describes releasing old baggage that no longer serves her.  
Carter read “Believe” and “My life” from her book “Already Famous.”  She also sang a remix of the Temptations.
Carter is currently fundraising to go to Ghana and is a Post youth correspondent.  Jordan is founder of Urban Youth Ambassadors, which empowers young people through meaningful travel experiences and mentoring.
