FRESH TALK: Out Loud
Join us for FRESH TALK with award-winning poets Elizabeth Acevedo, Nikki Giovanni, and Emi Mahmoud
Poets have long been society’s truth-tellers and witnesses, using language to illuminate our trials, histories, and hopes. Join us for a night of spoken word performance and intergenerational conversation led by luminary Nikki Giovanni, on cultural heritage, womanhood, and how poetry can help us imagine--and take action towards--a better future.
Followed by Catalyst, a cocktail hour with a topic and a twist.
- Elizabeth Acevedo, poet, educator, and young adult author
- Nikki Giovanni, poet, writer, educator, activist
- Emi Mahmoud, poet and activist
Required. $25 general admission; $20 members, seniors, students. Price includes museum admission and Catalyst. Exhibition galleries open to attendees before the program.
FRESH TALK is presented by the museum’s Women, Arts, and Social Change public program initiative.
