MLK Day Poetry Slam featuring Dominique Christina and CU MFA Natalie Sharp.
Join us for a special FREE performance in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Sat, Jan 13, 6-8PM, Old Main Chapel (CU-Boulder Campus)
“Revolution is the sound of your heart still beating. and as long as it is, you have work to do. Do it. Without apology. Do it. Bravely and nobly. Do it. Exist, insist, and by all means, resist.”
― Dominique Christina (http://www.dominiquechristina.com/)
Motus Theater, in collaboration with the Student Creative Writing Association (sCWA) at CU-Boulder, will bring to Boulder the world-renowned slam poet champion Dominique Christina, who will perform poems about current civil rights challenges in honor of the life and legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. The event launches from Martin Luther King Jr.’s famous statement: “There comes a time when silence is betrayal,” as Dominique challenges us all to find our own language, action, and voice during this challenging time.
After her performance, Dominique Christina will engage the audience in a conversation on her poems and current civil rights challenges.
The rising star poet Natalie Sharp will open for Dominique Christina's performance.
FREE & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
