The Bantu Collective, a group of poets, visual artists and musicians, will highlight an afternoon of literary events at Hamilton College on Saturday, April 5. "Spitting Fire: A Literary Inferno" will be held in the Fillius Events Barn, Beinecke Student Village, and will include open mikes for fiction writers and poets and Hamilton's first poetry slam. Admission to all events is free and open to the public.

The events are scheduled as follows: 3:30 p.m., an open mike for fiction writers and poets; 6:30 p.m., an open mike for poets; 7:30 p.m. The Bantu Collective performance; and 8:30 p.m., poetry slam.

The Bantu Collective was organized in Cleveland, Ohio, by poet Daniel Gray-Kontar, musician Abdullah Ibrahim and photograher Idris Salih. Believing in the uniformity of vision among artistic disciplines, the three combined their talents to create art that touches multiple senses. The poets, visual artists and musicians who now make up the group allow audiences to hear the music, feel the poetry and see the visual reflection of their art. Several of the group's members were part of Cleveland's National Poetry Slam championship team.

Hamilton students, faculty, administration and staff; and the general public are invited to participate in the open mike readings. Readers may register in advance or at the door. For more information, or to register call 859-4469.
