Roots101 Poetry Slam

Roots101 African American Museum is a Louisville gem, telling the African American experience, including history, culture and art, through exhibits, programs and activities. One program is its monthly poetry slam, the second Tuesday of every month. This month, as a result of the coronavirus epidemic, it’s going virtual. Deepsea Rice hosts — and expect a special intermission performance by the Sounds of the Week artist. Poems must be an original of the performer and no longer than three minutes. Five judges will be watching and scoring performances online, with $60 going to the winner, $30 to second place and $10 for third. But, organizers would like to remind everyone, “the point is not the points, the point is the poetry!” No props, costumes or musical instruments are allowed, and it’s $7 to participate.
