Video: Slam Nuba's Dominique Ashaheed wins 2012 Women of the World Poetry Slam

If there's any winner in the Women of the World Poetry Slam, it's Denver, first figuratively and now literally. The international championship, in its fifth year and Denver's first as the host city, kicked off Thursday and held its second preliminary round on Friday before ending with two X chromosomes and one winner Saturday night at the Denver Art Museum.

After four days of competition, Denver's own Dominique Ashaheed took home the title.

Can we say poetic justice?
