“The Anthem” third annual slam poetry contest

Seven pronounced poets from diverse backgrounds will come together to inspire the audience with words in Cal Poly’s third annual poetry slam, “The Anthem.” Aiming to show that words have enough power to change the world, the event, which exposes individuals to poets who are champions from the international slam circuit and who have performed on HBO’s Def Poetry Jam and National Public Radio, will address issues of gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, race, class, identity and love.
