Description:

A Busboys and Poetry Event hosted this week by Jonathan B Tucker

Born in Washington, DC and raised in Crofton, Maryland, Jonathan B. Tucker (JBT) is a poet, organizer, educator, DJ, photographer, and dreamer passionate about poetry, youth empowerment, racial and social justice, and finding purpose through service to others. He has received numerous awards and artist fellowships, and has performed and taught at schools, libraries, detention centers, museums, and conferences around the world. His poems have appeared in Howard University’s Amistad Journal alongside the late Amiri Baraka (Howard University, 2011), in Etan Thomas’s anthology Voices of the Future (Haymarket Books, 2012), and on the stages of the Kennedy Center and the South African State Theatre. JBT represented DC at the National Poetry Slam in 2009 and 2010, and coordinated and co-coached the DC Youth Slam Team with nonprofit org Split This Rock from 2011 to 2016. Producing and hosting poetry programs for over a decade, JBT now runs an international arts exchange program between DC and South Africa.

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.
