Poetry, Protest, and Possibility with Guante

Free; $5-$10 suggested donation
Literary, Poetry, Political, Spoken Word

This Wednesday, Kyle “Guante” Tran Myhre will share poems at Moon Palace. He’ll be joined by Fatima and Isha Camara, siblings and former youth poetry slam participants. The event is co-presented with MPD 150, a collective that aims to dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department. Guante will be sharing pieces exploring a police-free future, including “Quicksand,” which he performed during a recent TEDx Talk on using art as a tool for activism. He’ll also share works about racism and white supremacy from his latest album, Post-Post-Race, and his well-known piece “How to Explain White Supremacy to a White Supremacist.” Donations to the event go toward the collective’s upcoming projects, including an interactive exhibition planned for this fall.
