Each year, the Association of College Unions International (ACUI) produces the College Unions Poetry Slam Invitational (CUPSI) offering an opportunity for campuses with new or existing Poetry Slam programs to compete for top honors and to share their artistry and voices. And everyone is enriched by sharing poetry, embracing the value of inclusivity, and supporting a program in which “Everyone’s voice is welcome.”
At a recent CUPSI slam, Dan Roman gave a powerful account of living with it. Sometimes, there is no better way to explain; this is one of those times. Watch the following video.
Thanks to Dan Roman for sharing his description of it; ACUI for recognizing the need to support poetry slams; CUPSI for organizing the poetry slam; YouTube for hosting the video; Google for helping me find the video; and all the people who, directly or indirectly, made it possible for me to include the picture, video, and text I used in this post.
