Description

Java Speaks Open Mic havs been live for 18 years, this mic was started in 2001 by Kodac Harrison. In November of 2017, Kodac turned the mic over to Theresa Davis, published author and well known performance poet. Despite losing the Java Monkey Coffee House in a fire last winter, our new venue at Ammazzaa Decatur is excited to be our new home. Java Speaks has landed on the Best Of Atlanta for Creative Loafing and Georgia Voice many times.

Java Speaks is open to all and maintains a code of conduct regarding language. We do not censor but this community expects no hate speech, homophobia, sexism, racism or hate speech is allowed on this mic. So come on through listen to poetry and music, have a bottle of beer, a glass of wine, or a pizza pie!
