Your Host Joe & Annie have a mission! This isn't our conversation, its our Community’s Conversation!Our show's mission is to offer hope to the still suffering alcoholics and drug addicts in our community. Addiction is the most misunderstood disease of our time. Addicts and alcoholics feel separate, different and alone in our society more than ever. We, as a show, are determined to dispel myths, misconceptions, and societal stigma of this disease and those afflicted by it. By tuning in weekly our listeners will be exposed to personal stories and tragedies from addicts and alcoholics themselves. In addition, our show's purpose is to transmit hope, awareness, and shed light on the growing population of those recovering from this fatal illness. By carrying a message each week of depth and weight on the topic of addiction, we aspire to make a positive impact on this ever growing epidemic that is killing people in record numbers in our city as well as globally.
We are so excited to introduce you to our guest today, Rheonna Nicole, a spoken word artist and poet. 4 years ago she started an all female poetry slam In Louisville KY called Lipstick Wars. She started in a small theater that holds 600. That filled up and the next year she filled another theater that held 1200. This year Lipstick Wars is being held in Whitney Hall at the Kentucky Center for the Arts, a venue that holds more than 2300 people. Rheonna is a woman who will not take no for an answer. She is an example of how persistence and dedication pay off. Rheonna tells us how a poetry slam is perfect for a competitive person, why women benefit from having a female only event and why the classic black poets such as Langston Hughes and Maya Angelou are still her biggest influences even in the age of social media. Rheonna is such a joy to interview. Her positivity is contagious and it comes across over the airwaves. Right before this broadcast we received the news that Lipstick Wars is going on the road and will be in Lexington KY October 12 at the Carnegie Center. good news for our friends in that part of the state.You can find us on FB, instagram (@perksofbeingabookloverpod) and on our blog site at www.perksofbeingabooklover.comPerks airs on Forward Radio 106.5 FM and forwardradio.org every Wednesday at 6 pm, Thursdays at 6 am and 12 pm.
