Hosted by La Palabra Poetry
Poets will read poems that respond to the Black Panther movie. There will be no open mic for this La Palabra.
"To be clear, the hype around the Black Panther movie is incredibly warranted for a variety of reasons: Black Panther remains socially and culturally relevant because it imagines a world where black people continually triumph over the influences of capitalism, Western imperialism and white supremacy. Black Panther puts black women at the center of this black utopia. As it should. Black Panther will have black superheroes ditching the sidekick or wise-mentor role for the first time since Blade." Clarkisha Kent – The Root
La Palabra, a program of the Avenue 50 Studio, has been taking place since 2001. On the Fourth Sunday of every month from 2- 4pm, La Palabra invites the community to come out and read their poetry through an open mic series, followed by a featured poet.
