Hey folks, this Sunday it's a rare treat! One of the original Slammers is coming back in for a feature that will show you just how far you can transcend your words and thoughts: Furaha Henry-Jones will be featuring on Sunday 10/4 at 7:00pm at Canal Public House!
Here's a little something to give you an idea about Furaha from the folks at TedX Dayton:
Furaha is an associate professor of English at Sinclair Community College, where she also serves as director of Sinclair’s Writing Workshop and organizes the Sinclair Cultural Diversity Grant project Ubuntu: Poetry and Community. At heart, Furaha is a teacher and a poet, and she has spent the past 20 years working with people and words. She has taught in public high schools and prisons, GED programs and college composition courses, charter schools for out-of-school youth and migrant education programs. Her passion for helping people learn about themselves and others through the written word began in classrooms, but has extended into life beyond formal educational settings.
