Slamming Stereotypes with Kinetic Affect

TRAVERSE CITY — Join fellow community members for "Slamming Stereotypes," a unique evening of spoken word poetry set for 7 p.m. Feb. 11 at Milliken Auditorium, part of community-wide Embrace the Dream celebration. 

Two very different men, Kirk Latimer and Gabriel Giron of Kalamazoo, combine their voices as Kinetic Affect, to give life to their difficult histories through the expressive medium of spoken word poetry. Utilizing the lessons they have learned from surviving past traumatic experiences, Kinetic Affect will challenge students, educators and the community to break out of the ethnic, socio-economic, gender and racial stereotypes that burden so many lives.

Admission is free . This event is sponsored by NMC’s Office of Student Life and Traverse City High School.
