In celebration of national poetry month, Showing Up for Racial Justice (“SURJ”) Morgantown, invites you to “Penned in Black: An Open Mic Poetry Night.” Community members may share their original or covered poetry from authors of color, as well as other poems exploring race, privilege, and our shared humanity. SURJ looks forward to welcoming you on Friday, April 21, at the Blue Moose Cafe from 7pm-9pm for a night of unforgettable spoken word poetry.
This week’s Braver/Wiser message comes from Rev. Daniel Gregoire.
“I hope we choose our elected officials wisely, because much is at stake this time around. In the sanctuary of the voting booth, I hope we choose the power of Love above all else. Whatever the outcome on Tuesday—and the next day—we are one nation; one family whatever our political views.”
Take heart. Take a deep breath. But please get out there and vote.
