Hillyer Open Mic Events occur on the third Friday of every month and feature a stunning array of the District's poetic talent. Feature poets specialize in a variety of styles and take the audience for a personal journey into their work. Host Fred Joiner delves even deeper in his post-performance interview with feature performers, engaging them to illuminate their personal histories, influences, and perspectives to encourage heightened discourse and to somewhat unveil the mystery behind the words.
Kriss Mincey is a songwriter who aspires to write classics that generations to come will experience and value. She hails from Baltimore, and is a third-year Public Relations/English double major at the University of Maryland. She started singing in her high school choir and began writing only a year ago. In this short time, she has already recorded and written for artists such as Novacayne, Johnny Graham and E the Poet Emcee.
In this month's feature performance, Kriss will respond to the current exhibition, imMigration. This exhibition examines the many facets of migration and immigration from the perspective of migrants and immigrants, their families, and the cultures they have either entered or left behind.
Come enjoy Kriss' performance, the open mic session and discussion to follow! Whether you prefer to sit back and listen, or to help expand the stimulating dialogue, you are welcome to take part in this open forum event!
