Black Koffee open mic night

More stories from Michael Brown


Black United Students is welcoming everyone to come to its Black Koffee open mic night 8 p.m. Friday in the Memorial Student Center room BE38.

Live music, poetry, cookies and hot chocolate will be provided. This marks the second year for Black Koffee and Black United Students said it is hoping for a bigger and better turn out.

Myshea Bailey, junior psychology major and co-founder of the event said she  wants to see people come out and show off their artistic talents.

“I just want everyone to know that anything they have to say or any talent they have is important,” Bailey said. “Black Koffee is open to everyone. Last year for some reason people thought it was only for African American students, but that is not the case. I want everyone and anyone to feel welcome.”

The organization’s representatives said they are hoping to hear and see something different than last year.

Representatives also plan on continuing Black Koffee with hopes of one day bringing in a guest speaker.
