Soulful. Honest. Beautiful. Loving.
This will be a night to remember. Lets get together and celebrate our Mother's. Guardians. Protectors. Our first teachers. Our nurturers. The ones that give wholeheartedly and without question. The ones who sacrifice for us. Lets lift them up in appreciation and love!

Mothers. We thank you.

About Mahogany @ The Museum:

Café Mahogany closed years ago but its memory and spirit are just as strong as ever. As a popular hub for poets, students everyday Detroiters and professionals during the mid to late 90’s it was a coffee shop... a stage... a meeting place... a HOME. From homegrown, yet internationally recognized names like Dwele, James Carter, J Dilla, Slum Village, and Jessica Care Moore, to touring acts such as Common, The Roots, will.i.am, and Erykah Badu, Mahogany held a million beautiful moments. It gave Detroit a place where culture was celebrated and birthed our currently rich poetry scene. For more information about the history of Cafe Mahogany view the Cafe Mahogany Poetry Story with Joel Fluent Greene on YouTube.
