“Sankofa: At Home in Harlem” is an immersive arts access, cultural exchange and improvisational arts project celebrating watershed moments in African American arts movements. Using ancient Akan wisdom you will travel through time and space to 1920s -1940s Harlem. Led by our host poet Jennie Wright, our 21st century time travelers will be tasked with retrieving lost art legacies.
You are invited to pick up an "At Home in Harlem" Cosplay kit from the Kennedy Heights Arts Center and attend a Harlem Renaissance era spoken word poetry open mic via zoom dressed in the garb of the times. Adult and teen poets are invited to sign up to read their work during the open mic. This event is free, but registration is required. A Zoom link will be emailed to each registrant prior to the event.
Original poetry exploring any theme is welcome (up to 5 minutes), or choose a favorite poem by a writer from the Harlem Renaissance to read!
All events are free and open to all. Register to participate here:
