The Riddle Bird Café is an open mic night that welcomes performances focused on justice themes presented from diverse perspectives. Poets, singers, storytellers, comedians, musicians, and performance art lovers are all encouraged to join us. No prior performance experience is needed to take the stage. Sign-ups for the open mic will be available on the day of each event. Each open mic will showcase a local featured artist performing a 20–30 minute set, followed by brief discussion about their art.
"Rebel noire and the accomplices" make a distinct afroetic, genre-crossing sound, with lyrics exploring loss, liberation, resistance, and power.
These events are a partnership between the Notre Dame Creative Writing Program, the South Bend Civil Rights Heritage Center, and the Center for Social Concerns.
