Andrew Barnhill, Devin Magee, Justin Rogers, Joseph Verge, Ariana Washington, Breeana Blackmon at Detroit Youth Slam Team Welcome Home Reception at the Carr Center.
To Our Donors: the 2011 Detroit Youth Slam Team along with their coaches Aricka Foreman and Isaac Miller want to thank you for your support. We couldn't have funded our recent Brave New Voices opportunity without your contributions.
The experience in San Francisco was incredibly worthwhile. We all shared and learned so much from one another, as well as the hundreds of youth and leaders from across the nation. It's made us want to take poetry and youth leadership to the next level, creating bigger and better opportunities for the upcoming 2011-2012 season!
Thanks so much for your help and for your hard work in making us the one of the top four youth poetry teams in the world. Special shout out to Plymouth United Church, Thistle Coffee House, the Virgil H. Carr Center and major Kickstarter supporters Son Tran, Rebecca Vlasic and Larry Thomas for your generous donations.
