    • West Las Vegas Arts Center, 947 W. Lake Mead Blvd

    Founded at the West Las Vegas Arts Center in 1997, The Poets’ Corner premiered as the first established poetry program in Las Vegas. This monthly forum event is for established poets and open-mic participants and features the best local talent. Due to adult subject matter, we strongly advise participants be age 17 or older.

    Begins at 7:30 p.m. on the following dates:

    Dec. 20 Jan. 17 | Feb. 21 | Mar. 20 | Apr. 17 | May 15 | June 19

    West Las Vegas Arts Center
    947 W. Lake Mead Blvd | 702-229-ARTS (2787)

    Hosted by LaBlaque Williams

    The instant you first hear LaBlaque Williams roar out, “I… am a Spoken Word Artist!” you know he doesn’t just define the term, he embodies it, unleashing all at once a sheer propulsive power of subtle rhythmic force and incisive cultural and social critique, through an unparalleled personal, yet universally metaphorical, art of unique quality.

    In 2008, LaBlaque was named the coveted Spoken Word Critics’ Pick by FameCast’s National online talent competition over hundreds of others. Additionally, this Houston-born, long-time Las Vegas denizen, is a renowned prose writer, music producer, actor, “artrepreneur” and CEO of LaBlaque House Enterprises, Inc. and 2nd Flo Entertainment.  What's more, he is the organizer of annual poetry events like The Poetry SplashSpeaknicand co-founder of the mighty five-man Las Vegas spoken word dynamo-combo known as Griot Nation.

    Given LaBlaque’s formidable visceral and aesthetic presence, it may surprise you to hear that he is a gentle and intensely “involved” Vegas leader-activist and mentor who instructs youth and adults in Music Development and Artistic Development at the West Las Vegas Arts Center. An openhearted host, he has turned his own home into a speakeasy (LaBlaque House Lounge), where both young and old gather to dance and share soul via song and word.

    • West Las Vegas Library Theatre, 951 W. Lake Mead Blvd.

    This festival will feature a marketplace bazaar, children's workshop, guest speakers, community dialog, poetry, song, dance, drumming, and the Rites of Passage Graduation.

    Kwanzaa, celebrated from 26 December thru 1 January, was created in 1966 by Dr. Maulana Karenga, professor and chair of the Department of Black Studies at California State University, Long Beach, author and scholar-activist who stresses the indispensable need to preserve, continually revitalize and promote African American culture. Kwanzaa is an African American and Pan-African holiday which celebrates family, community and culture.
