Spoken Words (NYC)
Andrea Gibson writes about everything from what keeps her up at night to what makes her want to stay in bed for a week. On November 13, she will move with you with her words.
“The trauma said, ‘Don’t write these poems.
Nobody wants to hear you cry
about the grief inside your bones.’
But my bones said, ‘Tyler Clementi jumped
from the George Washington Bridge
into the Hudson River convinced
he was entirely alone.’
My bones said, ‘Write the poems.’”
Join the Stonewall Coalition, P.A.C.E. Board, and LGBTQA and Social Justice Center for a Pace exclusive performance and Q&A with award-winning poet and activist Andrea Gibson on Thursday, November 13, at 9:00 p.m. in the Bianco Room on the NYC Campus.
The first winner of the Women’s World Poetry Slam, among others, Andrea Gibson’s raw fearlessness has led her to the forefront of the spoken word movement—performing coast to coast with powerful readings on war, class, gender, bullying, white privilege, sexuality, love, and spirituality.
Her work has been featured on the BBC, Air America, C-SPAN, Free Speech TV, and was read by a state representative in lieu of morning prayer at the Utah State Legislature.
Her fifth full-length album Truce, released in 2013, is a slam poetry record featuring music by Chris Pureka, Eve Halpern, Bryan Wagstaff, and more.
Doors open at 8:40 p.m. and the performance begins at 9:00 p.m. The event is free for the Pace Community and food and beverages will be provided.
