2 hours

Spoken word artist LaShaun phoenix Moore returns to The Cube to host an evening of spoken word, live music, and film, featuring 2022 Kresge Arts Fellow Jassmine Parks. The evening is inspired by Parks’s award-winning short film, blk, and showcases performances from Detroit’s finest poets, musical sets by R&B and Soul vocalist Johdi, and DJ Stacye J.

Through film, poetry, and musical performances, artists will challenge the erasure of personal narratives prioritizing silencing through discrimination in blackness and welcoming other marginalized experiences from all walks of life.

blk encourages folx to feel emboldened to affirm the value in their stories through the power of written and spoken word.
