Hosted by Piedmont Laureate Dasan Ahanu, the NC Museum of History is celebrating North Carolina poetry by presenting this team poetry slam exhibition. Teams of poets from across the state have been invited to compete against the area’s own Bull City Slam Team.
This is an opportunity to experience what happens at regional and national competitions. Each of these teams will be preparing for competition this June at the 2023 Southern Fried Poetry Slam in Knoxville, Tennessee. Don’t miss this amazing showcase of performance poetry!
This event also will feature performances by special guest poets to be announced later!
