All are Welcome. Spoken word tells a story using rhythm, repetition, improvisation, and wordplay. It also can focus on issues of social change. Join us as we take a serious, unserious look at spoken word for community connection. Whether you are a newbie or oldie but goodie to poetry and spoken word you will find this salon seriously supportive and a way to share with others. Also, there will be a fancy, unfancy community spoken word gathering following the five week class highlighting the healing power of our work and words. This event will be held on June 5th from 5-7pm.

Salaam Green is an award-winning Poet, Writer,  Master Healer, creator of What Black Women Want You to Know, and founder of Literary Healing Arts, LLC, where she supports individuals and organizations in using writing, poetry, and storytelling to reclaim their voices and transform their lives.

In her work as an advocate for racial justice, anti-oppression, and community witnessing, she has spoken at the United Nations and facilitated and trained hundreds of leaders throughout the south,  including through the Selma Center for Nonviolence, Truth and Reconciliation and UAB Institute for Arts in Medicine and A Tedx Birmingham Spoken Word Speaker.
