For two hours audiences can expect a diverse chorus of college students voices and a vast array of spoken word performers, open mic rookies, musicians, comedians and other talents from freshmen to graduate students.  Each month, we feature a different college/university or an individual alumni artist. A great alternative to the college night life! Audience is open to all, college students are encouraged to share their work!


 

HOSTED BY: MALACHI BYRD

 

 

 

Proud Washington D.C. native Malachi Byrd is an eighteen year-old, rising sophomore at Princeton University. He is a 2-time member of the DC Youth Poetry Slam Team, including the 2014 winners of the Brave New Voices International Poetry Festival. A rapper, poet, scholar, and activist, Malachi has won numerous awards and scholarships, and has performed on television (including two episodes of Lexus Verses and Flow), radio, at protests on the national mall, the Kennedy Center, the White House, and South Africa. He is the self-proclaimed first Senator of Washington D.C., (Vote Byrd 2032) and will use his education to help tackle problems of inequality and inequity in urban environments. He never shies away from his Blackness and makes that evident in his second release of poems, Which Picture Would They Use? (2015), which is currently available.
