It’s been a long year since the Lipstick Wars, but we’re so happy they’re back. The sixth annual all-women poetry slam, hosted by poet Brandon “B Shatter” Harrison, features eight BIPOC poets. There couldn’t be a more important time to hear from the spoken word artists and, as organizers say, “celebrate and uplift the slain black women who have lost their lives to police brutality and say their name!” The three finalists will compete at Black Harvest on Halloween. Masks are required for all attendees.
