Still I Rise Poetry Slam - 2021 Spring edition

Hello, my name is Frank Williams – Visioneer for Unified Praise (UP). Our mission is to create artistic platforms for gospel focused artists. A couple of months ago I met Pamela Stegall on a business call and we realized that we shared passions. The Pamela D. Franklin Cultural Center for the Performing Arts (PDFCCPA) endeavors “To inspire those served – utilizing music, dance, theatre and creative writing – helping them realize their full potential to become a positive influence in the global community.” Unified Praises shares that aim. With our shared focus, PDFCCPA and UP have joined forces to convene The Still I Rise Virtual Poetry Slam Competition – 2021 Spring Edition. We are looking for poets, please go to to get more information about the competition and to register. Covid-19 has reared its head long enough, let's rise up together.
