POETRY FEATURE  PERFORMANCE

15-60 min feature

Spoken word artist Alex Tha Great travels from Dallas, TX to perform poetry and share stories of family, social justice, and African American culture.  The show combines poetry, prose, authentic storytelling of familial memories and personal testimony and racially charged commentary from current events and personal life experiences.  Her identity of mother, daughter, sister, friend, black, woman, heterosexual and survivor informs her history and predates her future.  Alex’s academic background fused with her real-world experience and travels have informed her necessary coalition with people of all races and her understanding of the struggle of other marginalized peoples. Her poems touch on a wide variety of content including race, religion, love, heartbreak, politics, prejudice, peace, self-identity, and self-esteem.
