Stony Brook students will showcase their gifts and intellect through spoken word and diverse modes of expression at the annual Black History Month Open Mic and Spoken Word Competition on Thursday, February 22, from 7 to 9 pm in the Student Activities Center, Ballroom A.
Pieces will focus on this year’s Black History Month theme: African Americans and the Arts and what it means to you.
Come out and support our student performers who will present their work live!
First, second and third prizes will be awarded, and the winners will be invited to perform on WUSB 90.1 FM/107.3 FM.
Last year’s winners of the BHM Spoken Word contest included first-place winner Mari Mourgues ‘25, a psychology major who performed, “Sometimes I Wish I Hadn’t Been Born.” Runners-up were Oluwatoyin Kupoluyi ’26 and Oluwatunmise Akinfeleye ‘24.
