World Press Freedom Day: Birmingham, AL
Join us as the 2019 Magic City Poetry Festival comes to a close, with a final community open mic reading. Join the Magic City Poetry Festival, Freedom House 205, and Real Life Poets as we moderate a community conversation with some of Birmingham’s gifted creatives, discussing what freedom of expression means to them from a hip hop perspective and exploring its manifestations across writing, truth-telling, and activism in the Magic City.
The event will begin with a reading of the PEN America Press Freedom Manifesto, followed by a great conversion and live performances based on freedom of expression and community with The Kickback as the DJ.
The event is free and open to the public!
