A Busboys and Poetry Event hosted this week by Charity Blackwell
Born in Arizona and raised in South Carolina, Charity Blackwell is a spoken word artist who is quickly making a name for herself in the DMV. Charity started writing poetry in high school but recently began performing her work in 2015. While pursuing her undergraduate degree at Trinity University, Charity cultivated, hosted, and performed at numerous spoken-word events for her school. She currently works for the Department of Commerce and recently completed her Master’s degree at Trinity in Communications with a concentration in Leadership. She hosted the 2013, 2014, and 2015 DC SCORES Poetry SLAMS! Now a two-time host of the National SLAM! in New York City. Charity is passionate about poetry, soccer, and youth development, and she remains involved in the D.C. spoken-word scene while she completes her first book of poems.
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.
