SILVER SPRING, MD, MAY 26, 2009: Poet and performer Henry Mills appears with DJ Fleg in Helicopters and Vultures, on June 12th, 7:00PM at the Writers Center, 4508 Walsh Street, Bethesda, MD, 20815 (admission free) with special guest poet Tala Rahmeh and on June 19th, 10:00PM at the DC Arts Center, 2438 18th ST NW, Washington DC, 20009 ($6 advance; $8 at the door) with special guest poet Zein el-Amine.
Henry Mills gives voice to his Salvadoran and Jewish heritage by exploring hyphenated identity; bearing witness to the human dimension of an “undocumented” existence; and reviving historical memory of war and diaspora. Mills intertwines poetry with hip-hop, Latin-American folk and jazz by DJ and musician Stephen Fleg. These performances are made possible by a grant from the Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County.
