NLW2012: Dr. Ahmad's Spoken Word Performance Class

In honor of National Poetry Month and National Library Week, students from Dr. Anjail Ahmad's creative writing course on the spoken word performed "Diary of a Mad College Student".

This frank performance, on April 12th in the library Seminar Room, covered the ills, trials and triumphs of life as a college student. The troupe drew enthusiastic applause as it revealed the tough truths of college through their poetic performance.

The ten A&T students shared emotional poetry. Creativity; confidence; uncertainty; ignorance and wisdom; shouting out and standing out; relationships; beauty; friends false and true; stereotypes; hard work; inspirations; challenges; and the Spirit of an HBCU were all given voice in this outstanding performance.

The “Diary of a Mad College Student” was a lyrical expression of Aggie life that will not be forgotten.

This moving performance was captured on video and will be available for viewing soon as part of the A&T University Archives.
