"Exhale" Poetry Night"

Poetry lovers from around Gainesville joined together last Friday (Oct. 23) for a chance to revel in the talents of guest poet Shihan Van Clief, director of Def Poetry Jam and a widely celebrated spoken word artist.

Exhale, hosted by Kaleidoscope Month, Poets, Inc. and Multicultural and Diversity Affairs, was held at the Orange & Brew during UF's Gator Nights. The campus cafe was packed to capacity. As the audience trickled in and the lights dimmed, the open mic show began with local poets blessing the stage with their stories and hearts.

When Shihan finally stepped on the stage, and before he even spoke, the audience lost their minds, offering their hands and voices with applause and screams.
