Blaxplanation and Slam Nuba have come together to present: The Mixtape of Black Colorado. On October 27, 2023, Theo Wilson, slam poet and author of The Law of Action: Master Key to the Universe We Actually Live In, will lead a group of Black poets as they explore their experiences in the 90s through the written and spoken word. Through the performances of these Denver and Aurora artists, we hope to engage with slam poetry to understand, celebrate, and engage with the experiences of being Black in the 90s.
