Join the National Fair Housing Alliance as we feature world-renowned, top-performing spoken word artists from across the country in the 4th Annual #NFHASLAM. These poets will INSPIRE you as they Slam for Justice in a one-of-a-kind competition for a grand prize of $1,500 – using their vibrant words and performance skills to compel us to do more to ensure that our society lives up to its values. NFHA recognizes the voices of artists as those forming a necessary paradigm shift to create impact, understanding, and radical change in socio-economic, racial, political, gender, sexuality, and cultural injustices.
Hosted by Joseph LSM and Pages Matam The NFHA 1K Slam is a poetry slam, competition & community engagement event. In the slam, selected poets will present their poems with a 3 minute time limit, and will be judged by a panel Olympic style on a scale of 0.0 – 10.0 on their creativity, originality, performance, and the overall inspirational effect of the poem in its presentation & writing.
Special guests include the Howard University ensemble and DJ Heat.
There will be a short Q&A, and an opportunity for audience members and social media participants to win prizes!!
