Details: Dwayne Morgan will be sharing an intimate evening featuring poems that span the full 26 years of his career. Have you seen the new Dave Chapelle special? Well, think of something like that, but with Spoken Word.
Make sure you put on that nice outfit, in case you end up on film!! This is something that Dwayne has wanted to do for a long time, and there’s no better time than the present. He’s been relearning old material, learning new material, and preparing to give a performance that truly reflects his entire career. As Dwayne is likely going to be nervous doing something that he’s never done before, be sure to show some support – big loud and making some noise – the crowd response is going to be a big part of the recording.
The celebration will be hosted by Jay Martin, and will also feature performances from Quisha Wint, Lisa Michelle, and Gina Pennesi. Dwayne will be turning 45 the following week, but will be away at the Canadian Poetry Championships with some poets that he’s mentoring, so the 8th will also double as bday celebration for him!
