POC take the stage
Friday, October 20, 10:30 p.m., Sol Collective, $10
This Friday, young folks will share their perspectives and experiences as people of color through powerful spoken word performances. Local poets representing neighborhoods throughout Sacramento will be joined by those from the Bay, San Diego and Chicago in this celebration and showcase of their talents. Performers in their teens to their early 20s with diverse, intersectional identities will share pieces of themselves on stage, revealing personal histories entangled within social structures. We all have something to learn from their words—about ourselves, our communities and our world. After the original 7 p.m. show sold out, a second performance of this anticipated showcase was scheduled for later that evening. 2574 21st Street, www.poc2017.eventbrite.com.
