    This entertaining documentary features a variety of African-American poets from all over America, who have gathered to perform at Kafe Kuumba in Indianapolis, a local cultural center sponsored by the Midtown Writers Association. Performances by these talented spoken-word poets are blended with interviews in which they discuss their creative influences, the importance of poetry as a form of social expression as well as entertainment, the use of jazz and traditional African drumming as musical accompaniment, and what writing poetry means to them and the community.
