Marc Alexandre Oho Bambe is a French and Cameroonian slammer poet, performer, author, and winner of the Prix Paul Verlaine de poésie de l’Académie Française.
After an introduction and brief discussion with Professor Souleymane Bachir Diagne, he will perform readings and slam poetry, drawing on his newly published book, Résidents de la République, written "in a state of emergency" that presents writings and reflections "in favor of finding ways of living together, against the defeat of ideals, desperation, and fatalism.”
This event is featured as part of “le Français dans tous ses états”, a series of events supported by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the U.S.
