The American Audit is a 2019-2020 multimedia spoken word poetry project by Baton Rouge poet, educator and Kennedy Center Citizen Artist Fellow, Donney Rose. It chronicles 400 years of Black American life using the extended metaphor of America as a business audited by African Americans after centuries of marginalization. The American Audit is a performance art piece consisting of original poetic verse, audio and video interviews with history and culture experts, and visceral imagery. Its function: to creatively assess the accrued toll on humanity afforded to people once considered property.
