In a world where anti-Blackness manifests as systemic oppression, unjust discrimination, and racialized violence specifically targeting black people, we cannot start to heal until we tell the truth of these experiences in public spaces. This poetry open mic invites all to participate in a cathartic community ritual of spoken word performance, in support of wellness, art and collective healing.

Featured Poets: CeLillianne Green & John Johnson
