The Obamas are bringing a little of the Chi (think Love Jones) to the District! The President and First Lady are hosting an evening of poetry, music and spoken word at the White House for a “Poetry Jam”. Scheduled to perform are Emmy winner James Earl Jones, jazz musician and singer Esperanza Spalding and jazz pianist Eric Lewis. (I saw Lewis perform last year and his playing is nothing short of riveting.)
The event will be streamed live on www.whitehouse.gov.
