Rebirth Annual Spoken Word Showcase was a success. The showcase took place April 8, 2023 at the Koger Center for the Arts. The event allowed the youth and the young adult participants the opportunity to express themselves through the various forms of Spoken Word. The showcase created an encouraging environment for their voices to be heard. We had a great line up of participants who talents varied from contemporary dance, poetry, singing, and acapella rap.
