SPOKE featuring Kavi Ade

SPOKE is the HUB’s monthly spoken word event. We use the event to build community and create a safe and encouraging space for people to share and listen to stories. Whether you have been to a thousand poetry events or have never been to one, it is a great place to find connection, excitement, healing, and beautiful poetry. For more information email or check out us out on Facebook Sonoma State HUB

Kavindu Ade is a 24 year old Wordsmith, Jedi, and Black Boy Extraordinaire. Born in Brooklyn, NY to Afro-Caribbean immigrants his poetry is a dance between cultures. While best known for his gender identity poem entitled “IT,” Kavi’s work centers on his navigation of intersecting identities - among those, the relation of his Blackness to his transcendence of gender. Through his poetry the world unfolds itself into moments of cruelty, but also beauty, wonder, and becoming.
