Just announced: on Friday, November 6, I’ll be performing at the U of MN Coffman Union’s Whole Music Club at 8pm along with Tish Jones, members of the Be Heard MN Youth Poetry Slam team, plus a couple of special guests TBA. 7:30pm doors, all ages, free. (Facebook event page).
I’ve visited more than a dozen colleges just this Fall, and have had the opportunity to both perform for and build with students, staff, and faculty all over the country. Using art as a jumping off point to have deeper discussions about issues of power, identity, activism and more, it’s been a great time, and this capstone event will be yet another chance to explore how art can respond to injustice in concrete, meaningful ways.
While I’ll be performing a mix of poetry and music at the event, I thought I’d make a quick playlist of some of my favorite “political” songs of mine, all available for free download (though you do have to click through on the individual track you want to download to get to the link) for anyone interested:
