Campus Coffeehouse series presents Taylor Mali

October 21, 2008

The Jitters Coffeehouse Series presents Taylor Mali, a spoken word artist, at 9 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 4, in the Perkins Student Center Multipurpose Room. This event is free to the public.

An advocate for teachers and the teaching profession, Mali spent nine years in the classroom. He has performed and lectured for educators all over the world. Mali received a New York Foundation for the Arts grant to develop "Teacher! Teacher!," a one-man show about poetry, teaching and math, which won the best solo performance at the 2001 U. S. Comedy Arts Festival. He was one of the original poets to appear on the HBO series "Russell Simmons Presents Def Poetry." He also portrayed the “golden-tongued villain” of Paul Devlin’s 1997 documentary film "SlamNation," which chronicled the National Poetry Slam Championship of 1996.

This performance is presented by Jitters Coffeehouse series and is sponsored by the Campus Activities Board, a group of students dedicated to the coordination of campus activities which promote a healthy lifestyle and which contribute toward the ultimate goal of providing a social learning experience
