Tonight: Help send Slam Nuba off to Charlotte
Slam Nuba is ready to rumble.
The 2012 Slam Nuba slam poetry team has a big reputation to uphold when it heads to Charlotte on August 7 for this year's National Slam Poetry Meet: It's a new and differently configured team that will be defending the group's 2011 first-place title.
