Recently on August 28th, I had the privilege of performing at one of Baltimore Maryland's premier open mic venues, Be Free Fridays. At this event I performed my poem "A Better Man," which is featured in my book Beyond the Event Horizon.
Be Free Fridays is every last Friday of the month, and is hosted by Shelly Says So and Love The Poet. BFF is also located at the Eubie Blake Center in Baltimore, MD. The love was flowing at this venue, and the two host were so welcoming. I truly felt at home, and look forward to visiting Be Free Fridays some day in the future. Check out the video of my performance, and don't forget to Like the video, if you truly enjoyed it.
