Join the Yale Peabody Museum, CT Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, and the New Haven Museum for the 28th Annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Legacy of Social and Environmental Justice with two days of free events open to all. Generously sponsored by Citizens.

Influential poet-performers Croilot and Ngoma emcee a packed slate of on-stage programs inside one of the largest auditoriums on Yale’s campus. They’ll kick things off with a high-energy group performance and a curated open mic. Those talented storytellers will be followed by a dazzling line-up of over a dozen renowned competition poets, including Ray Jane, Lyrical Faith, Tymani Rain, T’challa Williams, and last year’s winner Slangston Hughes.

Held in honor of New Haven arts leader Zannette Lewis, this event is appropriate for adults and young adults with discretion of a parent or guardian. Reception to follow with complimentary snacks and beverages. Space is limited–free registration is strongly recommended. Free parking is available in Yale Lot 22 at 260 Whitney Avenue.
