This year Lipstick Wars Poetry Slam will be a part of the Louisville Juneteenth Festival by Black Complex Louisville. Highlighting women poets from all over the country. First, second and third cash prizes will be awarded and bragging rights from the Juneteenth Festival! Lipstick Wars is an open platform for women and girls of all races, ethnicities and unique backgrounds to express their truths, everyday struggles and victories through the art of slam poetry, educational workshops and other programming. Lipstick Wars is a celebration of women. It was created in 2015 by spoken word poet Rheonna Nicole.
Thanks to the long-standing partnership with Kentucky Performing Arts, LW was birthed in The Kentucky Center’s Bomhard Theater. Since its creation the slam continues to blossom and grow to new heights, and new Kentucky Performing Arts venues, gaining attention and participation from nationally ranked poets from St. Louis, Ohio, Chicago, New Jersey, Tennessee, South Carolina and Texas.
Special thanks to Brown-Forman and Black Complex for their support of this event.
