Eco-Poetry Slam This Monday

Please help me welcome former national poetry slam champion
Regie Gibson to Boston University this Monday for his feature
set in our Eco-Slam, part of Ecofest. Regie is an award-winning poet, spoken word artist, songwriter, actor and workshop facilitator. His 1997 film, "Love Jones", loosely based on his life about a young poet growing up in Chicago, is credited with sparking worldwide interest in poetry performances and competitive poetry "slam" events. He has lectured and performed widely in the US, Cuba and Europe and we're
lucky he's able to join our event at BU this Monday.  Feel free to bring a friend.

Here is a clip from Regie at Hampshire College in 2008:

Regie's envirnomentally-themed set will be followed by members of BU's Speak for Yourself slam team and an open mic for a great night of eco-poetry. There will be door prizes as
well as prizes for the poets so come help cheer the poets on.
7pm at BU Central, this Monday.

This is an Ecofest event. All are welcome.

You can also sign up for Ecofest at (for which your attendance will on Monday will also gain you points towards cool eco-prizes). It would be great to see you on Monday night and at other Ecofest events (
