Mahogany URBAN Poetry Series has been at the forefront of the poetry scene in Northern California for the past 16 years. There is NO other known urban venue that has existed as long. NO other venue that has catered consistently to the urban market, the youth, and both local and international poets, comedians, singers, etc.

Every year, we celebrate another accomplishment. Last year we packed out the Guild Theater, and had an afterparty at The Brickhouse.

This year we are bringing the phenomenal and legendary poet GEORGIA ME to Sacramento to celebrate with us.

Feature Poet Epiphany Castro:

Epiphany Castro—born and raised in Berkeley, California with soulful roots traceable to New Orleans, Louisiana; perhaps this is where it starts—at the roots. Epiphany began singing and involved herself in performance arts during her fledgling years, which also was the beginning of her writing experience with shorts and poems. In her adulthood she studied theatre arts at San Francisco State and began singing in local bands in the bay area. Expanding her limbs she went international, traveling across Europe. Performing at various venues and learning new forms of expression before she returned to the Unite States to resume her activities in art and career. “My eyes speak volumes of truth, my voice speaks for the voiceless —for those who are misunderstood” It was in recent years when Epiphany heeded the call to poetry, which seemed to be a natural fit as she appeared at various poetry speakeasies and open mics; she published her first volume of poetry titled Everything and Nothing, and later began exercising her love for vocalizing once more, which led to the production of several albums. Besides her personal milestones, Epiphany became the household branding for what is globally known as Epiphany’s House: the place where artists meet; it is at this online podcast that she finds herself most comfortable and instrumental in the promotion of her affinity for both music and poetry.
