Uptown Nights: The Return of Two Dick Willie

Danny Simmons with Vernon Reid, Ursula Rucker, and Special Guests
Hosted by Asha Bandele


Danny Simmons debuts his latest volume of poetry and artwork The Return of 2 Dick Willie in a unique evening of music, poetry and visual art.  He is joined by legendary guitarist Vernon Reid and poet Ursula Rucker along with special guest musicians and spoken word artists. Writer and activist Asha Bandele hosts.

“Equally ferocious and genius with his sensually lush artwork, Danny Simmons is a consummate poet and his alter ego is here to check our egos, kickin' brand new flava in our mind's ear while loving us with our foibles, boils, blemishes, crusty eyelashes, contradictions, and all.” Author, Tony Medina
