Purple Life, a collaboration between the Offices of Campus Activities, Multicultural Affairs, and the Kiernan Recreation Center are excited to virtually host JAYLENE CLARK OWENS this Wednesday at 4:00pm.  In this 50 minute interactive performance,  Jaylene Clark Owens uses her poetry to discuss the power of embracing your authentic voice. Participants will hear several powerful, original spoken word poems that speak to the many different ways your voice can be used, such as advocating for yourself, speaking against injustices, and using your voice to create opportunities. Jaylene will allot time to take questions from the audience about her artistic career and process, as well as facilitate a writing exercise in which she and the students will create a collective poem about the strength that comes from living in your authenticity.  This event is open to the Niagara community and can be accessed at Any questions please contact Bill Newton, Assistant Director of Campus Activities.
