ELEVATE is a showcase of Black and Brown voices uplifting one another through the art of spoken word on Wednesday, June 16, 2021.
This project will share untold and unseen work centered around local and national historical events, the impact of systemic racism, and individuals challenging racist ideologies. Most importantly, ELEVATE is the celebration and empowerment of the people. This event is created for the community, by the community.
Join us as this virtual evening of raw, bold, breathtaking performances from poets of all ages, presentations by a historian, and celebrations of unsung heroes who have paved the way will be followed by a community conversation. All are invited to witness the intricate and creative program for free on Wednesday, June 16, 2021, at 6:30 pm PT. RSVP to participate in the community conversation that will follow the program, focusing on the creative process and issues affecting the artists and communities represented. All who RSVP will receive a link to watch with us!
