Please join us for this very special event with Colorado Poet Laureate, Bobby LeFebre! His poetry spans all of the social justice issues of our time - from George Floyd, Black Lives Matter, gun violence, politics, gentrification, and so much more. His words will make you think, his poetry will give you chills, and his persona will make the learning accessible.

Bobby LeFebre is an award-winning writer, performer, and cultural worker fusing a non-traditional multi-hyphenated professional identity to imagine new realities, empower communities, advance arts and culture, and serve as an agent of provocation, transformation, equity and social change. His work has appeared in The New York Times, Huffington Post, The Guardian, American Theater Magazine, NPR, and Poets.Org.

In 2019, LeFebre was named Colorado's 8 th Poet Laureate, making him the youngest and first person of color to be appointed to the position in its 100 year history. LeFebre holds a bachelor's degree in Psychology from the Metropolitan University of Denver and a master's degree in Arts and Culture from the University of Denver. Learn more about Bobby on his website.
