Come listen to four poets share their work, reflecting a world defined by gender, race and identity. Together, they weave a narrative that strikes a balance between a grimmer reality and an increasing sensitivity to love and equity. Vann Harris recently won the 2017 Gwendolyn Brooks Open Mic Award. Rozina Kidari is a Creative Writing Fellow with the Luminarts Cultural Foundation. Nicole Bond is the winner of the 2016 Gwendolyn Brooks Open Mic Awards. Samina Hadi-Tabassum’s book of poems, Muslim Melancholia was published by Red Mountain Press in 2017.
