FEATURING: CHARLES XAVIER KILBORN

Charles Xavier -- less formally known throughout the community as Charlie -- is an East Atlanta native, currently residing in Baltimore, Maryland. He is a motivational speaker, community healing advocate, and spoken word performance poet. Self described as a "man of trans experience", Charles Xavier feels it is his responsibility to use his transition as a way to facilitate open conversations about intersectionality and the importance of living a life that is true to the authentic self. Through his poetry, activism, and community building efforts he hopes to motivate others to care more deeply & intentionally for themselves, & each other.

---------------------------------------

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.
