Henrico County Acknowledged Black Men Read

Recently Henrico County acknowledged Black Men Read as we helped sponsor two events at our partner school, Highland Springs High School (Highland Springs, VA).  The first was a Poetry Workshop led by Roscoe Burnems, performance poet, mentor and Founder of the Writer’s Den Poetry Slam Team.  The Writer’s Den Poetry Slam Team is Richmond’s premier poetry slam experience which holds performance poetry competitions the last Wednesday of the month. The Writer’s Den Slam team has sent teams to regional and national competitions since 2014 and are currently ranked top 10 in the South.
