Spitting Fire: Honoring PLACE through Spoken Word Poetry

Sponsor: NCA First Vice President
Fri, 11/18: 3:30 PM - 4:45 PM CST
Room: Preservation Hall Studio 2 - 2nd Floor 
This session highlights the possibilities of Black Rhetoric, through the avenue of spoken word poetry, both as a healing as well as transgressive communication strategy used by artistes and scholars alike. Through live performances by professional poets from New Orleans as well as communication scholar-poets, the panel invites the audience to reflect upon the historical and philosophical contributions of Black Rhetoric as well as how that rhetoric has been used to interrogate and honor PLACE.
