This first month of teaching has been such a whirlwind that I completely forgot to share that I’m doing a thing!
After participating in an inaugural @fightevilwithpoetry
event at @rosebudcoffee
I got invited back to perform as part of the lineup with @unlockedopenmic
and I couldn’t be more honored!
Come on out and listen as hella cool poets dig deep into the topic of immigration. What does it mean to be an immigrant, especially in our current political climate? What spaces do immigrants, their families, and their children occupy—and what spaces are they excluded from? How do we reckon with our country’s overwhelming fear of immigration with its history of immigrants as its lifeblood and energy?
Let us tell you, in poems.
This Friday evening, at @rosebudcoffee
in Pasadena. Doors open at 6:30 PM.
We are ready to UN-LOCK on Friday, 9/21. Doors open at 6:30 PM. Enough time to grab a cup of @rosebudcoffee
