What does a ›sense of belonging‹ mean to me? This is the question that Black artists will ask themselves on stage at Bremen’s first One World Poetry Night. The poets deal with sociopolitical problems in the form of poems, accompanied by Black moderation and Black musicians. The Poetry Night with the leading artist Stefanie-Lahya Aukongo provides space to see society with different eyes and call it into question.

Stefanie-Lahya Aukongo is a Black, intersectional artist, writer, poet, curator, multiplier, singer, activist, workshop instructor, and photographer. Her art reflects her social realities as a Black, phat-is-beautiful, queer, disabled, neurodiverse femme of color. Since 2014 Lahya has been curating and moderating the monthly spoken-word event series “One World Poetry Night” in Berlin. She is a member of the soul-inspired acoustic duo ›Lahya & Jokaa‹. Her texts have appeared in various publications, and she has also published the books ›Kalungas Kind‹ and ›Buchstabengefühle‹.
