For April we'll celebrate National Poetry Month with Self-Expression Through the Spoken Word on Monday, April 10 at 12:00pm.

The documentary takes us inside The Poetry Lounge, "a free, multicultural open-forum for self-expression, inspiring young people to find their own voice and let it be heard. Hosted by award-winning Def Poets Shihan and Poetri, the "Lounge" has become the largest weekly open mic forum in the country, and was one of the inspirations for Russell Simmons' 2003 Tony-winning show, Def Poetry Jam. Taken from a recent Poetry Lounge event, this program features 2004 National Slam Champions, performing their work and sharing their inspiration. Learn the fundamentals of writing and performing 'spoken word' poetry from some of the most accomplished poets of the movement" (description taken from Kanopy).

In the upcoming months, we'll also screen:
