Lyrics from Lockdown
at Miller Theatre


The Latino Alumni Association of Columbia University (LAACU), the Black Alumni Council (BAC), the Asian Columbia Alumni Association (ACAA), and the Columbia Alumni Association (CAA) invite you to a special presentation of
Lyrics from Lockdown featuring Bryonn Bain ’95CC, award-winning slam poet and activist.

In his multimedia solo performance piece, Bain presents a searing critique of the American justice system. The production is based on his own wrongful imprisonment for what he memorably termed (in a cover story for the Village Voice) “walking while black.” With the support of a live band and video DJ, Bain tells his story with an imaginative blend of hip-hop, theater, and spoken word.
