Black Girl Magic: BreakBeat poets

Monday May 21: 7:00PM 8:00PM

Buy a copy of BreakBeat Poets vol. 2: Black Girl Magic or a $15 gift card to attend. This event will take place in the Rare Book Room, located on the 3rd floor of the Strand and accessible via the in-store elevators or next door at 826 Broadway through the stairs or elevator.

Building off of the themes in the first BreakBeat Poets anthology, Black Girl Magic delves into the work of some of the most prominent Black Women writing in the poetry world today. Deconstructing the misnomer of hip hop as a men's-only scene, this anthology of poetry illustrates more than ever that poetry is a feminine art form.

Join us in the Rare Book Room for a night of poetry readings, courtesy of contributors to The BreakBeat Poets Vol 2: Black Girl Magic. The night will be MC'd by award-winning performance poet and author Mahogany L. Browne!
