A poetry slam was held in the exhibition Face Jugs: Art and Ritual in 19th Century South Carolina at the Milwaukee Art Museum on June 24, 2012. The exhibition includes 23 early African American-made Edgefield, SC face jugs, interpreting their connection to Africa. This video, filmed by Dan Ollman, features the winner of the poetry slam, Darian Wilson. It also features two poets, Destinny Fletcher and Denzel Taylor, both of whom performed powerful poems inspired by the face jugs.
