Spoken word poetry event draws audience

Poetry photo 

A Spoken Word Poetry Jam, sponsored by the UWRF Black Student Union, drew students to the UC Thursday evening. The event featured Frank Sentwali, a Twin Cities spoken word artist, and an open microphone segment. According to Wikipedia, spoken word is a style of performance poetry that began in New York City and became popular in the early nineties. Unlike previous styles of poetry, spoken word is usually written with the intention of being performed. It emphasizes the tone of the human voice, which adds another layer of meaning for interpretation. For more photos by Jens Gunelson, visit http://www.uwrf.edu/photo_archive/ early next week.
