In conjunction with the 2nd Annual Civic Discourse Week, Decatur Public Library is hosting a spoken word event. This year’s theme is ‘Looking Back to Look Forward: Using Hip-Hop, History, & Literature to Understand Today’s Social Culture.’

You can lend your voice and perspective to this narrative, through original poetry, song, hip hop, nasheed or other spoken word formats. You are also encouraged to come hear these voices and perspectives.

For those wishing to contribute, there will be opportunities to sign up for a spot online. Your song, nasheed, rap or spoken-word poem can be about anything, but we encourage you to write about something that moves you. Please keep performances under 5 minutes in length.

You can reserve a spot in our line-up here: http://www.decaturlibrary.org/look-hear/
