An Evening of Spoken Word with Sunni Patterson

Tuesday, May 7 at 7:30pm to 8:30pm

Sunni Patterson is a New Orleans native poet who combines the heritage, culture, and traditions of her native town with a spiritual worldview to create powerful music and poetry. She is poetry in action; she is a political wordsmith. Her words capture a culture, unite people, and shed light on issues some would find uncomfortable or un-newsworthy. Most of all, she is enlightening and speaks her truth, giving other women the power and strength to do so as well. She is “a Black woman warrior poet doing [her] work – [here] to ask you, are you doing yours?”. Sunni Patterson captures sunlight and radiates it in her being, in her words, and in her action.
