Binghamton University poets slam views on black history


Binghamton University students will reflect on the progress, richness and diversity of African American achievement during a poetry slam at 7 p.m. Sunday, February 9, at the Lost Dog Café at 222 Water Street, Binghamton.

The event will feature Ainsley Burrows, a self published poet, spoken word artist and musician. Burrows is the author of a book of poetry titled Black Angels with sky blue feathers, which spurred the release of an album of spoken word and musical artistry called “Cataclysm.”

Audience members will be encouraged to participate in the poetry slam through open-microphone periods throughout the evening.

The event is sponsored by the Black Student Union (BSU) of Binghamton University and is free and open to the community.
