SPOKANE, Wash. – Gonzaga University’s second annual Diversity Monologues, a competition that gives Gonzaga students a forum to engage their creativity and share their experiences with diversity, will begin at 7 p.m., Thursday, March 29 in the Jepson Center’s Wolff Auditorium. It is free and open to the public.

The program, which allows students to express their lived experiences through their own personal cultural lenses, consists of two distinct parts. The first half of the program involves nine student contestants sharing their work, followed by an hourlong performance by Shihan The Poet, who is the former talent director of Def Poetry Jam and is a National Poetry Slam Champion.

The event is sponsored by Gonzaga’s Unity Multicultural Education Center in collaboration with the Gonzaga University Student Body Association, the Gonzaga president’s office, and the Community Building Foundation.
