On Tuesday, February 21st at 8pm, Baub Bidon will be making an appearance at the Student Gathering Place in CDH as apart of celebrating Black History Month. Bidon is a multi-talented poet, actor, writer, playwright, visual artist. He echos the outcry of men, women, and children, stemming from abuse, rape, injustice, and inequalities of the judicial and education system.
Baub’s poetry is the voice of the unheard catapulted to ears of those who refuse to listen. As in the words of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” Baub conceptualizes the idea of a better tomorrow, and a brighter day.
His message is delivered through the voice and spirit of Hip Hop, Jazz, and Blues; in a poetic/ storytelling art form. Baub’s work has appeared in the anthologies Echo’s from Elm Street: Spokenword on an Empty Canvas, and Poets On the Road to Peace. He has also authored Aglimpse/Spokenword in Back Pockets and the CD called Aglimpse. “If New Haven’s hip-hop community has a Renaissance man, it just might be Baub Bidon,” says Jim Shelton of the New Haven Register. This event is brought to you by Black Student Union and Kaleidoscope Coalition.
