After an impactful event in the spring semester, poets Janette…ikz and Ezekiel are returning to the Vanguard University campus for another night of spoken word on Nov. 13 from 8 to 9 p.m.
Poets Janette…ikz and Ezekiel captivate and inspire audiences while sharing important Biblical truths through spoken word. Diversity Events Coordinator Shannon Price, who is planning the event, said they reach a different audience by “integrating faith into hip hop culture.” Spoken word allows people to “express faith in a variety of different ways… It is very deep and raw,” Price added.
Looking forward to the event, Price said that people should come because, for many, it will be something they have never experienced before. The spring semester event was her first time at a spoken word event. She had high expectations for the event and it did not disappoint. “To see vulnerability up on stage is very new and refreshing,” she said.
This local event is open to the public. Some refreshments will be provided.
