Motown Mic: The Spoken Word

The Music Hall • In case you missed it, the Motown Museum has hosted a series of spoken word readings all spring long. The series culminates with a special grand finale this week. The museum will welcome the public into Detroit’s Music Hall, where finalists will perform original poetry inspired by Motown. It’s a great chance to witness up-and-comers in the city’s rich performance scene, and to see the talented winner receive a $1,000 prize awarded by the contest’s judges.
