BlackLift Poetry House (2024 BlackLift Music & Poetry Festival)

March 2 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm CST

On Saturday, March 2, Southern Word will host the annual BlackLift Poetry House where new and established poets and songwriters lift their voices to elevate the beauty and triumphs of Black culture. The event includes a Freestyle Gallery in which some of the city’s top and newest freestyle artists take prompts from the audience and weave them into powerful messages about the past, present, and future. Pizza will be served for those 18 and under.

This event is in partnership with Studio NPL and supported by Metro Arts, Tennessee Arts Commission, and the Nashville Public Library Foundation as part of the 2024 BlackLift Music & Poetry Festival.
