Teen Poetry Happens Joins "Dare To Speak the Word Aloud" Poetry Readings at Hiddenite Arts

The Hiddenite Arts & Heritage Center celebrated the words of Dr. Maya Angelou with an art reception on January 10, 2016. Local artists interpreted Dr. Angelou's poetic words and quotes through many different art forms. Then, on January 30 (after a postponement due to a snowstorm), poets gathered to celebrate her works in spoken word, music, and through interpretive dance and sign language.

Teen Poetry Happens joined the fantastic group of readers, musicians, and art appreciators at the Center's Dare to Speak the Word Aloud event.  This was the final program surrounding the poetry of Dr. Maya Angelou and the many artists who were inspired to create around her words.

The teen poets selected favorite works of Dr. Angelou to read aloud.  So proud of their participation in this remarkable event.
