Estrella Mountain Community College (EMCC) invited artistic expression during Women’s History Month. Students could attend short events to watch artists demonstrate what Women’s History is all about.
One event that stood out was the performance of slam poetry. Marc Smith created this form of poetry in a Chicago lounge during the early 1980s. Slam poetry as a deep expression of emotion spoken out loud. The concept of each poem depends on what the artist is trying to convey. Some try to inspire the audience, while others compete against their peers.
