Your African Student Council is proud to host four artists from the critcally acclaimed agency The Strivers Row for a spoken word event the likes of which Grand Valley has never seen.  This will be both a celebration and communication of cultural and social knowledge.


The particular artists that will be showcased have performed at the following:

The Clinton Global Citizen Award 2012, Nelson Mandela's Birthday Celebration in South Africa, The Sundance Film Festival, Russel Simmon's Def Poetry Jam, The Apollo Theater, Kennedy Center Washington DC, The Smithsonian Museum, Brooklyn Academy of Music, The NAACP Image Awards, Poetry Africa and President Obama's Evening of Poetry and Music at the White House, on BBC Radio Oxford (alongside former U.S. Poet Laureates Billy Collins and Rita Dove), at the Du Bois Institute Panel (as a guest of Henry Louis Gates), and opened for Dr. Cornel West
