FEATURING KIM MARSHALL
Born in Seoul, South Korea, Kim Marshall is a biracial poet who considers herself from a little bit of everywhere due to the experience of traveling extensively during her childhood. This and other myriad tales about her life are present in her poetry along with her passion for community engagement. A vocal advocate, eager to engage the world around her and explore its multifaceted stories, she is a Cave Canem Fellow and currently resides in D.C. Her work has appeared in FreezeRay Poetry and the anthologies Multiverse and After Ferguson: In Solidarity.
For two hours, audiences can expect a diverse chorus of voices, and a vast array of professional spoken word performers, open mic rookies, musicians and a different host every week. Expect to be moved, expect a packed house, expect the unexpected, but above all come with an open mind and ear.
