The Black History Month Spoken Word Open Mic Night is an opportunity for SBU students to showcase their gifts and intellect  through spoken word and diverse modes of expression.  There is a general theme that we want contestants to focus on, so please read the guidelines.  We also encourage those that just want to perform, to also sign up and share their gifts and talents. 


Performances must be respectful and under 5 minutes long.  Only SBU students currently enrolled and in good academic standing are eligible to perform.  Past winners are not eligible to compete and past participants must perform a new work this year.  Performers will present their work at Tabler Black Box Theater. Winner will perform on WUSB 90.1. Formal attire is accepted. 

Pieces should focus on one or more of the following topics:
Public Education
Slavery In Africa       
Black Minds Matter
Sports Demonstrations     
Voting Rights
Police Brutality               
Black Family Structure
Mass Incarceration
