Listening Project Live

February 28 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Come hear the dynamic voices of Asheville youth in the Listening Project Live: Youth Voices on Race, Gentrification and Home. Last year, Listening Project student participants told ACSF that they want to talk about race. Students are uncomfortable with the disparities they see everyday in their classrooms and community, and they want to be part of the solution. Poet and MTV Cultural Critic, Hanif Abdurraqib, and Poet, Teaching Artist and Imagination Activist, Glenis Redmond, will moderate this powerful evening of spoken-word poetry.

“It is through beauty, poetry and the visionary power of our youth that the world will be renewed.”

Read the New York Times’ glowing review of Hanif’s work here.
