The intellectual androgyne Banjela Davis brings you yet another dynamic evening of sound and vision with Legends Statements & Stars! (LSS): Raw, an open mic for the gods where we are inviting self-identified LGBTQ rappers, writers, poets, beatmakers, singers, activists, and other noisemakers of color to sound their truth in the wake of ongoing political unrest. Spectators and cyphers are welcome and encouraged.

Manifestoes, poems, rhymes, songs, dances, phrases, confessions, journals, essays, monologues, treatments, scribbles, vignettes, short stories–YOU NAAAAME IT)!
