Nikki Giovanni at Reagan Washington National Airport

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!

  1. This is wonderful. I’d love to see literary events at more airports. It would be a great pre-flight diversion, but I suppose scheduling (and loudspeaker announcements) may be an issue….I wouldn’t want to leave in the middle of a really great reading!
