SOME THINGS MUST BE HEARD

OPEN/ CLOSE MIC SPITTING & POLITICKING SERIES

We have featured more than 20 Local, National, and International Spoken Word Artists and Community Organizers.

I created this platform because deep meaningful transformation occurs when we have safe sacred spaces to openly and honestly express ourselves, network, and build lasting relationships. We are committed to using art as a strategy for organizing and a tool for black liberation. My featured artists and organizers are committed to the art and the movement. Artists, Activists, Humanitarians, Revolutionaries, and Community Organizers such as Audre Lorde, Sonia Sanchez, Nikki Giovanni, Amir Baraka, Maya Angelou, Alice Walker,

and Langston Hughes used their gifts to radicalize the people and enact change and we intend to do the same.

SOME THINGS MUST BE HEARD IS A 2023 REGIONAL ARTS COMMISSION GRANT RECIPIENT   AWARDEE !!

STAY TUNED FOR THE FIRE 2024 BLAZING LINEUP !!!
