College Night hosted by Malachi Byrd

Proud Washington D.C. native Malachi Byrd is a twenty one year-old junior at Princeton University. The captain and co-founder of ContraVerse, his high school slam team, Malachi led the team to the 2014 Louder Than a Bomb – DMV title. He also is a 2-time member of the DC Youth Poetry Slam Team, including the 2014 winners of the Brave New Voices International Poetry Festival. A rapper, poet, scholar, and activist, Malachi has won numerous awards and scholarships, and has performed on television (including two episodes of Lexus Verses and Flow), radio, at protests on the national mall, the Kennedy Center, the White House, and South Africa. He is the self-proclaimed first Senator of Washington D.C., (Vote Byrd 2032) and will use his education to help tackle problems of inequality and inequity in urban environments. An African-American Studies major and Creative Writing minor, Malachi uses his poetry as introspection, self-discovery, self-critique, and activism. He never shies away from his Blackness and makes that evident in his second release of poems, Which Picture Would They Use? (2015). His first fully published book and mixtape, dually named Crowning Too Early (C.T.E.), is currently available.
