Event Details

The Wordsmiths present the history and nuances of Spoken Word, that part of the Great African Oral Tradition by which familial stories, history, traditions, and more are all relayed through cleverly woven poems and stories. It is the dramatic delivery of the soul through clever wordplay, tonal semantics, metaphor, odd syntax and characterization. Humanities Nebraska provides major funding for this program. HN receives support from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Nebraska Cultural Endowment, and private donations.
