Ain't no sunshine

  You still have a chance to meet these gentle giants of the poetry world at these informal poetry training sessions.  Please make an effort to find your voice and join the choir.

Tri-C is sponsoring their visit to Cleveland, culminating in a final  Hip-Hop Choir presentation on March 26th

Jonathan Lykes, at a Slam U workshop, wears the suit he donned earlier in the day for Mock Trial competition. "If I can stretch myself as far as possible without breaking, then I'm doing good," he says. "But slam is definitely one of the most important things in my life."
