National Museum of African American History and Culture Hosts Digital Poetry Slam Friday, April 24 to Celebrate National Poetry Month

Written by Good Black News

April 22, 2020

The National Museum of African American History and Culture is celebrating National Poetry Month with a Digital Poetry Slam on Friday, April 24.

The Museum will accept videos of original poetry performances and still images of poetry-inspired creations that reflect four different themes: Resiliency, Hope, Community, and Jazz. Members, friends, families, aspiring poets, and artists of all ages are encouraged to participate.

If you are interested, visit NMAAHC’s website for inspiration, guidelines, and featured objects from the Museum’s collection.

You can also record a video of yourself performing a poetry piece, or your poetic creation based on one of the designated themes and share your video on your social media platforms using the hashtag #NMAAHCPoetrySlam and tag @NMAAHC so it can “like,” comment, and share.
