Slam poet Porsha Olayiwola will perform at 6:30 p.m. Jan. 31 in the Student Union Building Hub.

Olayiwola is the 2014 Individual World Poetry Slam champion and 2015 National Poetry Slam champion. She bested more than 70 of the highest ranked slam poets in the world to earn these titles and is now one of the most sought after spoken word artists on the national circuit.

A native of Chicago, Olayiwola now resides in Boston where she organizes, writes and teaches. She separates herself from the field of issue-based performance poets by applying advanced political analysis to examine injustice while providing perspective on concrete solutions.

The Multicultural Affairs Center will be providing a workshop with Olayiwola following her performance at 8:30 p.m.
