BAM Booking Agency signs Def Poetry Jam producer, Bruce Geogre

Open less than 24 hours, The Black Arts Movement Booking Agency has signed on notable clients, including Def Poetry Jam co-producer, Bruce George, Comedian/actor/director Donald Lacy, Felipe Luciano of the Last Poets, Sista Q of Harambee Radio and Gregory Walker of the Brother's Network.  Nikki Giovanni declined. We suspect she has an exclusive contract with Jodi Solomon Agency, but she wished us well. Nikki was the only BAM poet to send a donation for the BAM 50th anniversary celebration at Oakland's Laney College, 2015. Thank you, Sista Nikki!
