Power of Poetry Workshop with Tasleem Jamila

Event Type: Adults
Date: 3/18/2017
Start Time: 2:00 PM
End Time: 4:00 PM
 We tell our own stories, reclaim the power to write our own futures. We recognize ourselves in the stories and memories of others and are awakened to the unity in us all. This workshop is focused and organized around poetry and spoken word as a means for social change and preserving our ancestors’ stories. It recognizes our poetry as being powerful and intentional. We give light and attention to those poets who were bold and took risks in raising their voices with words so that I may speak today. This workshop is a celebration of those who came before and those still speaking loud today.
