HFCC to host National Poetry Slam Champion

DEARBORN — The Henry Ford Community College Council of World Cultures and Michigan Ave., the college’s literary and arts journal, will sponsor a performance by National Poetry Slam champion Blair Monday from 2 to 2:30 p.m. March 28.

The event will take place in room L-14 of the Liberal Arts Building and is free and open the the public.

Blair will perform poems from his new book, “Moonwalking.” Organizers say his “gorgeous, sometimes gritty, gravity-defying poems” spin out from the life of Michael Jackson. They also say Monday is a spectacular performer whose words, voice and body will take audience members from Motown to the moon, from Gary to Bahrain.
