Poet Wanda Coleman to Appear in Culver City as Part of West Los Angeles College Black History Month Events

In celebration of Black History Month, West Los Angeles College in Culver City is hosting a series of free events, including an evening dance, art, music and poetry at the campus' Fine Arts Theatre. This free event will feature performances and works from

Poet - Wanda Coleman: The poet’s latest collection – her 19th book -- is titled The World Falls Away. "It’s a continuation of my odyssey as an African-American woman, writer, mother, now grandmother, and the city as I live it, the city as it’s defined me," Coleman says. For the last 40 years, Los Angeles-based poet Wanda Coleman has written about the L.A. she loves and hates.

Capoeira Brazil: Capoeira was created by Brazilian slaves. It is a fusion of dance, martial arts and music, rooted in African cultures. Capoeira Brazil is a popular Los Angeles based teaching and performing group.

Sculptor – Michael Chukes: “His brightly colored, primarily female sculptures depict the many dimensions of the human figure, often with exaggerated and seemingly misplaced appendages-hands attached to heads or backs, leading up to elongated necks and impossible long, wavy locks. The results are slightly surreal pieces that cause the viewer to re-examine their notions of beauty and the body.” (OaklandLocal.com)
