Description

Well-known spoken word poet Rudy Francisco will perform on Friday, March 24 at 7 p.m. at the T-Bird Nest at Casper College. The event is free and open to the public.

According to Francisco’s biography, he “is an amalgamation of social critique, introspection, honesty and humor. He uses personal narratives to discuss the politics of race, class, gender and religion while simultaneously pinpointing and reinforcing the interconnected nature of human existence.”

In addition, Francisco “seeks to create work that promotes healthy dialogue, discourse, and social change. (He) has made conscious efforts to cultivate young poets and expose the youth to the genre of spoken word poetry via coaching, workshops, and performances at preparatory schools and community centers.”

Francisco, who has shared the stage with artists such as Gladys Knight, Jordin Sparks, Musiq Soul Child, and Jill Scott, is the 2009 National Underground Poetry Slam Champion, 2010 Individual World Poetry Slam Champion, and appeared on TV One’s “Verses and Flow.”

The T-Bird Nest is located on the third floor of the Union/University Building on the Casper College campus
