The Obamas Host a Poetry Slam

Last night the first couple, students from Washington DC universities, and performers like James Earl Jones gathered for an evening of poetry, music, and the spoken word. Whitehouse.gov explained that the event was designed to show how dialogue is important in every aspect of who we are as Americans and as human beings.

The busy Obama administration is making time for a little culture. Yesterday 50 grassroot community art groups gathered at the White House to discuss opportunities available through the federal government. Obama's so-called "hipster in chief," Yosi Sergant, said the meeting demonstrated the president's commitment to both art and community organizing.
