12th Annual Hip Hop Poetry Choir
Saturday, July 14, 2018
This is a free performance featuring the poetry created by the participants of the 12th Annual, Expressions: Talk Up, Not Down, 2018 poetry camp. Thirty-five county youth spent a week working with master poets learning to use poetry as a positive tool of expression.
The poets: Neville Adams, Christopher Fields, Desire Johnson, Sekeithia Johnson, Karin Wilkinson, Sistah Joy, Janique Muckelvene and visual artists Pierre Dennis and Lillian Shaw spent the week working with the youth teaching them how to use their voice for positive expression. The poems created by the youth provide a unique look into the modern teen who is dealing with many issues associated with growing up in the 21st Century.
Ages: Open to all ages
