Page Meets Stage: Amir Sulaiman & Zubaida Bello!
Performance & Conversation

12/7/17 | 7PM | FREE! | REGISTER BELOW
NYU KIMMEL CENTER | ROOM 914 SILVER

In partnership with the popular New York City reading series Page Meets Stage, The Crossover is a quarterly event where fellows and writers associated with Cave Canem, CantoMundo, Kundiman, Lambda Literary, Apicha Community Health Center and other like-minded organizations are paired with emerging teen poets from Urban Word NYC to engage in a reading and conversation about their works. Each event will pair voices of young artists with organizations that create space for and support the work of communities underrepresented in American letters. Join us on December 7th to spotlight these two dynamic artists!

Zubaida Bello is a senior at Uncommon Preparatory at Charter High School in Brooklyn. She has performed original poetry at the world famous Apollo Theater, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York Live Arts, Bryant Park, and elsewhere. Zubaida jorunalism has been published, most recently Chalkbeat, and she is a proud member of the Youth Leadership Board at Urban Word NYC. Zubaida uses her poetry as an outlet for trauma, a form of activism, and to make other people smile. She hopes to leave an impact on the world through her words.

Amir Sulaiman is a poet, recording artist, Harvard Fellow, actor, screen writer and producer born in Rochester, New York. His poems cross subjects of love, tragedy as well as what it means to reconcile humanity with the unprecedented trials of modernity. He has performed his works across the US as well as many other countries including England, Belgium, Senegal, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Sweden, Australia, Iran and the Netherlands, and continues to tour world-wide. His recently published book of poetry, Love, Gnosis & Other Suicide Attempts met with critical acclaim, in addition to his latest album "The Opening," the third in a unique trilogy project, following "The Meccan Openings" (2011) and "The Medinan Openings" (2012). Amir was first introduced to a National audience in 2005 when he was featured for two seasons on Russell Simmons' groundbreaking series Def Poetry Jam on HBO.
