Highlighting the continuum of wordsmiths lending their voices and pens to the movement for Black diasporic freedom, this discussion will focus on the spoken and written word. Local poets, writers and educators will discuss their perspectives on freedom and what it means to them.

The free Heritage Project series was created with the spirit of a modern-day Harlem Renaissance salon. Join us to discover, listen to and engage in essential discussions surrounding art and social justice in the Black community.

Doors open at 6 p.m. Arrive early for happy hour food and drink specials before the conversation begins at 7 p.m.

Admission to Words of Freedom is free. However, first-access passes are required. Get your first-access passes now!
