Sacred sounds, poetry, spoken word, music this Thursday

I ran into Memphis’ poet laureate IQ last night and he told me about an event happening this Thursday, April 26, at the Memphis Theological Seminary (East Parkway at Union) from 5:30 to 8:30. Here’s a scan of the flyer:

Looks like they have an impressive lineup: Dr. Valerie Bridgeman Davis, a professor at the seminary and a finalist in “My South Speaks”; IQ, who has been to three National Poetry Slams and is the local Slam Master; John Hancock, the 2000 Southern Fried Champion; da Shade Moonbeam from Austin, and many others. Check it out if you get a chance.
