A group of young poets who have performed at the Sundance Film Festival and the White House are bringing their talents to the Jackie Gaughan Multicultural Center in Lincoln.
The Strivers Row Poets will perform on Feb. 17th.
The poets will bring their stories of racial discrimination,
homophobia and poverty in a hard-hitting poetic style.
They speak individually and as a group, using conventional and
unconventional performance styles that incorporate drama and music.
The "Spoken Soiree" is free to University of Nebraska at Lincoln students and admission is $5 for faculty, staff and the public.
The event is sponsored by the University Program Council, a
student organization that provides diverse, educational and
entertaining programs and events to enhance the UNL community.
