Urban Word NYC’s Uptown Open Poetry Slam
Summer On The Hudson events in August include a series of poetry slam shows every Thursday evening at West Harlem Piers Park on West 125th Street near Henry Hudson Pkwy. Harlem Stage and Urban Word NYC have joined forces to present “Uptown Open: Summer Edition,” an open mic spoken word series which features Urban Word NYC’s 2011 Slam Team youth.
This free poetry slam event is a great venue for young people to express themselves, and it’s going down from 5pm-6:30pm, Thursday August 11, 18, 25th, and September 1st.
