First Friday Youth Open Mic Postponed Until February (with Jha D Williams!)

Taking place next month at the First Baptist Church in Jamaica Plain.

Please Join us February 3rd for our first First Friday of the year Featuring Jha D Williams!  

Jha D is the founder of the “If You Can Feel It, You Can Speak It” open mic at Jamaica Plain’s Milky Way, as well as the dreamer of EN-ER-GY, an annual showcase of eclectic Boston talent. She has been writing and performing for over ten years, and her poetry has afforded her the opportunities to participate in documentaries as well as be featured at and MC various events such as the True Colors Conference and the Philadelphia Dyke March. Additionally, she has performed and conducted writing workshops at the University of Pennsylvania, Bucknell University, Northeastern University, Boston College, and UMass Boston. Her pieces are birthed from her experiences, and she therefore writes about self-love, identity evolution, sexuality and growth through emotions. She firmly believes in the power of expression and professes that “there is true art in spreading your own truths.”
