River City Invitational Youth Poetry Slam

Poetry can be read silently, or it can be spoken aloud with passion behind every word. If you like the latter, the Speed Art Museum is hosting a youth poetry slam to show everyone in Derby City the power of the spoken word. Teams include Young Poets of Louisville, Metaphorically Speaking (from Dayton), IndyPulse (from Indianapolis) and DePaul Cristo Rey (from Cincinnati). In addition to the poetry competition, there willbe jazz by and Henry Gritton & Jack Youngblood, and tea provided by Teas You.
