SLAM POETRY AT FISHER 3/20/2019

Slam poetry is not your parents’ poetry; it is a way for voices and topics that never get heard to be heard. And not just be heard, but be professed, performed, aloud for ALL to hear. ANGLES is all about that.. and it is coming to St. John Fisher. Rachel Wiley and Siaara Freeman, renowned slam poets and activists, will perform this Wednesday, 3/20/2019 at 7 pm in Basil Gateway Midlevel.

Freeman has even be recognized beyond the United States in Norway, Costa Rica and...

GALLERY AND INTERVIEW

ANGLES: Hi Molly! Can you tell us a little more about yourself? MF: Oh, god, I’m so boring. I am a junior at SCSU in New Haven, CT. I went to France this summer as part of a French film studies/filmmaking program. I lied to so many people over there. Every time someone asked where I went to school, I just said, “You know Yale?

And my laziness doesn’t really come across in...

ANGLES: Hi Brittney! Can you tell us a little about yourself? BB: I’m a sophomore, part-time student at St. John Fisher. I am a Media and Communications major with two minors: Women and Gender Studies and Film and Television Studies. I definitely love movies, film, and art. Anything artistic or creative is what I do in my spare time. It’s definitely something that I use as sort of a self-care routine. A lot of my art is reflective of what I’m going through and it’s just very calming, so that’s become an outlet for me. ANGLES: The layers of...
