KGNU Community Radio & Cafe Nuba present SUHEIR HAMMAD
Thursday, February 22, 7:30 pm
The Asbury Event Center
3001 Vallejo Denver

Suheir Hammad, who hails from Brooklyn, has been called "a new voice with an authentic blend of language that's her own, and music that belongs to the streets" (Elmaz Abinader, author of Children of the Roojme). Suheir's appearance on the debut episode of HBO's "Russell Simmons Presents Def Poetry" merited generous media praise. Her work has been published in numerous periodicals, including The Amsterdam News, Essence, STRESS Hip-Hop Magazine and the Middle East Report; in anthologies including New to North America (Burning Bush Press), Listen Up! (Ballantyne), The Space Between Our Footsteps (Simon & Schuster) and 33 Things Every Girl Should Know About Women's History (Crown Publishers). Suheir produced plays include Blood Trinity (NY Hip-Hop Theatre Festival) and ReOrientalism (Center for Cultural Exchange). Suheir's poetry has been featured on the BBC World Service and National Public Radio. She has also appeared at universities and prisons throughout the United States. Suheir's new book of poetry ZaatarDiva (Cypher Books) is available in bookstores now.
