I Got The Mic

Presented By WACO Theater Center in association with Eli Lu Entertainment and Richard Lawson Studios

 In response to the need to shift to virtual programming, we created and presented five episodes of I Got The Mic: Poetic Experience, an online show featuring a poetry jam that showcased poets, spoken word artists, and wordsmiths from around the world. Fixated on wordplay, metaphors, expression, and creative storytelling, each showcase was integrated with segments on “The Evolution of African Culture” and focused on the diasporic flow of Ghana, Africa’s influence on arts and culture worldwide. This alignment to I Got the Mic’s programming helped elevate and connect U.S. descendants to African heritage and culture.
