Slam Nuba celebrates another big victory tonight at the Crossroads

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.
