Event Details

"Nine On The Ninth" Open Mic Poetry is the legendary monthly poetry series that debuted back in October 2005

HOST

Derrick Weston Brown

nine-ninth-logoIt's a feature driven format, which means, the feature opens the show and the open mic follows. We do this to make sure you get the full effect of each and every specially selected feature we bring to the Langston Room stage, and we've had plenty; From Def Poetry Jam's, Tara Betts, Bassey Ikpi, Roger Bonair Agard and Regie Cabico, to award winning poets such as Reginald Dwayne Betts, Rachel Eliza Griffiths, Sarah Browning, to rare visits by Grammy nominated artists Christylez Bacon and Carolyn Malachi.
