As a part of our Black writer’s spotlight throughout the month of February, we invite you to register and attend NXTHVN’s Virtual Open Mic night! Hosted by our High School Apprentices, this event celebrates and brings together local New Haven poets with those recognized on a national scale. Throughout history, Black poets have used the written and spoken word to assert the beauty and complexity of our culture. This event is designed to make space for radical imagination and showcase the possibility of activating new worlds through the medium of poetry. The event honors Black History Month and the contributions of Black poets, by making way for new voices and new realities.
