ABOUT THE EVENT: This event aims to give a space and a mic to self-identified people of colour, mixed race, and/or Indigenous people to share their poetry, stories, jokes, songs, histories, resistance, and lives. Come out, come speak, come listen!
ABOUT POCTALK KINGSTON: Seeks to create community for us, challenge the communities that are unsafe for us, and foster room for our narratives to be brought together.
ABOUT THE FEATURE POET: Raissa Simone is all kinds of excited to host her EP release at POCTALK. Her work fuses black power nostalgia, drone music, and whatever shit is making her anxious right now. She really wants you to come to this and then drink red wine and go swimming with her after.
