Sept. 13: Twin Poets: Changing Hearts and Minds Performance
September 12, 2017
Event is free and open to all UD students, faculty, and staff, as well as the community
The Sexual Assault Prevention and Education Committee, a Student Wellness and Health Promotion initiative at the University of Delaware, will be hosting the Twin Poets in the Trabant University Center, Multipurpose Room A on Wednesday, Sept. 13 at 7 p.m. This event is free and open to all UD students, faculty, and staff, as well as the community.
Delaware Poets Laureates Nnamdi Chukwuocha and Albert Mills, the Twin Poets, are sharing their works with the UD community to address topics of interpersonal violence, bullying, and masculinity. The UD community may recall their packed performance at last year's Latino Heritage Month Extravaganza hosted by the Center for Black Culture, another unit within UD's Division of Student Life. Both Chukwuocha and Mills are social workers in Wilmington as well as activists, mentors, and educators. Their spoken word poetry tackles social justice issues while entertaining and engaging audiences. With more than 30 years of experience serving families and children in Wilmington, the Twin Poets share their stories with heart and compassion. Be prepared to be inspired and moved by their powerful performance.
Cosponsors of the event include Student Life's director of student diversity and inclusion, kNOw MORE, and Men’s Action Network.
