Steamrolling toward the August nationals in Charlotte, North Carolina, the 2012 Slam Nuba slam poetry team (and 2011 national winner) is just back in town after snagging a first-place victory in the Southwest Shootout in Tulsa. The Slam Nuba crew will celebrate tonight, with help from guest poet Tongo Eisen-Martin of San Francisco, at Crossroads Theater.
Eisen-Martin, a Zora Neale Hurston Award-winner known for his spoken-word work with prisoners, will also perform at the all-ages evening that begins at 6:30 p.m. with a workshop and continues with an 8 p.m. open mike and 9 p.m. slam.
Slam admission is $5; find details at the Slam Nuba event page on Facebook.
