Nuyorican Poets Cafe at HEHG

Wednesday, May 24, 2017
7 – 9:30pm

Hunter East Harlem Gallery
2180 3rd Avenue
New York, NY 10035

Founded in 1973, the Nuyorican Poets Cafe began as a living room salon in the East Village apartment of writer and poet Miguel Algarin along with other playwrights, poets, and musicians of color whose work was not accepted by the mainstream academic, entertainment or publishing industries. Since then, Nuyorican Poets Cafe has served as a home for groundbreaking works of poetry, music, theater and visual arts with weekly events for the creative and curious.

For the event at HEHG, Nuyorican Poets Cafe has invited some of their poets to perform written works followed by an open-mic slam session, open to anyone interested in the art form.
