“Revolutionary Words.” Sounds intriguing, and possibly…violent?
Not that kind of revolution. We’re talking about the bloodless kind, the mind revolution, each individual looking deep and changing the one and only person he/she/we are able: ourselves, one at a time. “Revolutionary Words” are those that dare to speak the truth out loud. “Revolutionary Words” are those that refuse to accept the status quo just because that’s the way it’s always been. “Revolutionary Words” are those that question the basic assumptions our society and our lives are built upon.
Practically speaking, “Revolutionary Words” is a new Social Justice Open Mic that I’m curating under my stage persona, MK Punky. We’re looking for poets and prophets to join us in a kind and nurturing space, Elderberries Community Justice Café, where some sensational spoken word artists seen often at Da Poetry Lounge will demonstrate that the Consciousness Revolution is well underway.
We hope one day you will join us. And the world will live as one. Until then, “Revolutionary Words” will be spoken and heard.
