Twin Poets Al Mills and Nnamdi Chukwuocha – identical twins – are renowned throughout the state and beyond for their thought-provoking spoken word performances.
The program will also feature music from the University’s Concert Choir and Gospel Choir, as well performances by other spoken word artists.
