2nd Annual Black Power Poetry Night!

Monday, April 24th, 6-8pm

New York, NY

An entertaining and soul-stirring evening of powerful, original poetry read or recited by some of NYC's most talented professional and amateur Black poets and wordsmiths. Poetic expression can take many forms, but at this highly anticipated event, all poetry focuses on our experiences as Black people, liberation, or critiques of injustice and oppression. Poets, please try to arrive by 6pm in order to sign up before we begin at 6:30pm. Community members that enjoy poetry but are poets themselves, are warmly invited and encouraged to attend this open-mic. REGISTER FOR YOUR FREE TICKET HERE.
