Black History Month Poetry Showcase

Hosted By Miesha Brundridge

Signature Event Series Social Justice Initiative

The [email protected]’s frequent poetry collaborator Miesha Brundridge is bringing together a local tribe of poets in celebration of Black History Month. This live poetry showcase will honor prominent black poets, speakers, and their words! Featured are local poets, including contributors of the locally published NEPTUNE poetry magazine, participants of The [email protected] BLM Poetry Night, and students from John Hopkins Writing and Poetry Club. There will be music, poetry and monologues presented both virtually on The [email protected] Facebook page as well as live to a limited audience.  Advance reservations are needed to attend, and masks are required of all audience and participants.

In addition to the in person event, a live-stream broadcast will be presented on The [email protected] Facebook Page. CLICK HERE to go to that page.
