An Evening with Zimbabwean Slam Poetry Artist, Michael Mabwe
Interested in slam poetry, human rights issues and activism? Join the World Affairs Council and the Young International Professional Network (YPIN) for an evening with Michael Mambwe, Zimbabwean slam poetry artist and human rights activist as he performs and speaks of his work with human rights.

Mr. Michael Mabwe is Director of Zimbabwe Poets for Human Rights and National Coordinator of the Zimbabwe United States Alumni Association. After visiting Seattle in 2008 with the State Department's International Visitor Leadership Program, Michael has been selected by the State Department to return as a result of his courageous work with human rights and youth activism in Zimbabwe.

Through his arts programs, he has worked to bring attention to issues such as corruption, nepotism, autocracy, media freedom, HIV/AIDs, elections, empowerment, good governance, and human rights. He has also organized community arts forums and began the annual Ukubambana Youth Peace Festival, leading to the Ukubambana Youth Peace Declaration that described the role that youth wish to play in reconciliation and healing in Zimbabwe. Mr. Mabwe is an active member of the Zimbabwe-United States of America Alumni Association, where he is working to help dispel myths about the United States that are prevalent in Zimbabwe.

There will be a bar serving wine and beer. Food can also be purchased.
