Youth Speaks Spokes want to create space at our open mic to honor the #BlackLivesMatter movement. This open mic is inspired by the the protests, rallies and resistance. In this moment, we will not be silent, we will be resilient.

Through art and discussion, we wish to bring awareness to our communities about racist police brutality and the injustices of the criminal "justice" system.

So, please bring any poems, songs, art, dance and verses that speak to this theme of resistance.

In that spirit, we want to celebrate Black voices and leadership with two fierce features:

Acacia Salisbury is a 17 year old poet from Seattle Washington. She write poems about black girl problems, life and recently has been venturing into love life. She has preformed at various venues across Seattle. She spends her spare time reading Baldwin and looking at poetry on YouTube.

Nikkita is just a simple poet. As a lover of words, good stories and powerful take aways Nikkita strives to enter into a dialogue with those hear her words in hopes that together they can make a difference.
