Come, sit, & listen. A night of poetic storytelling

Who: Black Poetry Theatre presents… 


What: come, sit, & listen. A night of poetic storytelling


“Many stories matter. Stories have been used to dispossess and to malign. But stories can also be used to empower, and to humanize. Stories can break the dignity of a people. But stories can also repair that broken dignity.” ― Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie


Witness a masterful cadre of writers bring their poems to life on stage. They will share stories of pain, joy, love, hope, and struggle. We will all be taken on a journey of purpose and discovery led by the eloquence of powerful expression. Each poet will show us what is possible when the page is blended with authentic voice. Come join us on this spoken word adventure as these artists combine the skill of oration with the subtle nuance of theatre and improvisation.


Featuring Church DaPoet, Fuze Namid, Mariah M, Chyna, Sean Ingram, and Tim Jackson
