Hi everyone! WRB has only just launched this week, and we already have fun events around the Bend to share with you! This Saturday, right before the Bowl, is the Black and White Poetry Jam at the Potawatomi Greenhouse Conservatory, right across the street from Indiana University South Bend, backed up against Kids’ Kingdom.
Here is all of the information I have on the event, as it is distributed on Facebook:
“The subtlest and most pervasive of all influences are those which create and maintain the repertory of stereotypes. We are told about the world before we see it. We imagine most things before we experience them.” -Walter Lippman
Do you find yourself questioning why some things are dubbed as ok while others are not? Do you ask yourself “who cares” or “why is no one addressing this” when seeing the news? Are you one of the few who is not afraid to speak out or simply listen about the many injustices happening in our world? If you answered yes to any of these, then the first ever South Bend Black and White Poetry Jam is where you need to be at. On February 6th, 2016 from 8:00pm to 10:30pm at the Potawatomi Conservatories, 15 local poets will perform poetic pieces on injustice. We will gather to change opinions, broaden minds, push boundaries, and overall escape the herd of sheeple so many of us have been sucked into. It’s time to paint a Black and White picture and address the elephant in the room.
