A Night of Spoken Word Poetry/Open Mic featuring Angela Drew

Info on Black History Month Spoken Word and Open Mic at the West Campus Library & Learning Center

Featured Spoken Word Artist/Poet

Angela Drew is a mother, dancer, author, poet and self-proclaimed linguistic artist who has loved the rhythm of words for as long as she can remember. Born in Berkeley, CA, she began writing at age eight and has always understood that words have the power to soothe, stir, or solidify connection. Thus, her lifelong love affair with storytelling began. Angela is the winner and first-place slam champion of Modesto’s 2021 ILL List 16 Poetry Slam. She has performed at various venues throughout Northern CA, including the Gallo Center for the Arts, in a Sankofa Community Theatre production of “The Journey —The African American Experience,” the Hildegard Festival of Women in the Arts and Expose Yourself to Art, a Mistlin/Central California Art Association endeavor, to name a few. She is the author of ElderBerry Wine, a children’s book written in poetic verse, that celebrates the beauty and majesty of our elders and the richness they bring by simply being a part of our lives. To learn more about Angela and her word artistry, visit her on Instagram @she_spits_fire, Facebook @Angela Drew (Angela Mason) and online at
