Black history IS the forerunner of spoken word today.

Author and Spoken Word renegade Andrea Thompson takes us through the history of Black Culture to show us how spoken word today is informed by the African American’s in slavery.

As a spoken-word fore-runner, Andrea was the first person to pitch and create spoken word courses to Ontario universities in 2008, (7 years ahead of Harvard and Stanford). Her wildly successful courses have taught some of the biggest names on the scene today.

She is the author of the prose-drama Over our Heads (Inanna Publications).
