If you’re passing through Reagan Washington National Airport on Monday morning, February 27, 2012, around 10 a.m. then make your way to the historic lobby of Terminal A for a poetry slam.
The event is part of the airport’s Black History Month celebration and the local high school students competing will be judged by a panel that includes Nikki Giovanni, a well-known poet and a New York Times Bestsellers List author; Amy Young, poet laureate from Alexandria, Va.; and Vincent Young, published author, artist and Airports Authority employee.
Following the Poetry Slam, Nikki Giovanni will read selections from her works and answer questions from the audience. A real treat!
