SIRG Closing Program: A Higher Power hosted by Arsimmer McCoy

Date & Time:


Locust Projects
3852 North Miami Avenue
Miami, FL 33127

A Higher Power is a live performance, audio, & visual homage to Miami’s sovereign storyteller Will “Da Real One '' Bell.

Bell transformed the Spoken Word plane by cultivating spaces of belonging, through creation, space, and practice. Bell’s voice of resilience, through hard-won experience, resounds as the familial anchor for Black and brown communities across the city of Miami and beyond. Will Bell is the embodiment of Miami’s culture and artistic innovation. Bell honored the vulnerability of a people, seeking rooms that embraced expression, liberation to silenced hearts, and rest to the anxious and exhausted.  Will “Da Real One” Bell was murdered in front of the Literary Cafe on May 29th, 2011. The Cafe was one of the collective hubs Bell purchased for poetry events, workshops, and education.

Delving into the revolutionary intricacies of sound, this celebration closes the series of programs on the SIRG platform.
