Black Pride, Black Passion, Black Power says
In celebration of our 20th year of SpeakFire, which was created by the late Tony Daniels, we will mobilize some of the poets and performers in MetroAtlanta and beyond in what will be the biggest SpeakFire event in memory. Tony’s vision for SpeakFire was to bring together a diverse audience of lovers of poetry that transcended gender and that was inclusive of all the aspects of our community. At SpeakFire one could be both political and erotic, as prideful about being LGBTQ as about being Black. It is Black Pride, afterall. The event will be co-hosted by Atlanta based Theresa Davis (Art Amok, Java Monkey, Cliterati) and Tim’m West (The Front Porch, Pink Elephant Festival) who have for many of these 20 years, been integral poets who carry the legacy and spirit of SpeakFire. This year will also feature poet Robin G. White, vocalist Ken J. Martin, the legendary Duncan Teague (Adodi Muse), Hip Hop artist Camil Williams, and Antron-Reshaud Olukayode.
