Climbing PoeTree: Spoken Word and Multimedia Performance
Join a performance with Climbing PoeTree, the spoken-word duo of award-winning hip-hop activists Alixa Garcia and Naima Penniman.
“Critical,” “powerful,” “fulfilling,” “heart-wrenching,” “magical”, “intoxicating,” “thrilling,” and “inspiring” are some of the words audience members have used to describe Climbing PoeTree’s performance in the messages that pour in after every show from individuals who profess that they have been forever changed by Alixa and Naima’s words and presence.
Snacks provided, please RSVP.
