Poet Fly Etaghene comes to Wes

Poet Yvonne Fly Onakeme Etaghene is doing a set tomorrow night at 200 Church. Lizzie Busch ’10 has the scoop:

Etaghene is an Ijaw and Urhobo Nigerian dyke performance activist, poet, dancer, essayist, playwright and actress who was born with a mouth full of dynamite and sugarcane. She uses her poetry to chisel a verbal sculpture of her soul for listeners while addressing issues of race, ethnicity, class, gender, sexuality, war, imperialism, love, self-esteem and family. Etaghene has self-published three collections of poetry, toured nationally and performed in over 25 u.s. cities. Her one woman show, Volcano’s Birthright{s}, debuted in May 2009 in New York City.

Date: TOMORROW, Saturday, 4/24
Time: 7 pm
Place: 200 Church

[EDIT: changed time to 7 pm]
