Spencer's Vanguard

Spencer's Vanguard is a group of talented poets, singers, musicians, and songwriters, united by the impact that the performing arts have had on their lives, and the potential it has to change lives. Each artist has their own unique story and purpose, which they bring to the stage and the microphone each time they speak.

Inspired by Anne Spencer, local legend and Harlem Renaissance poet, SV aspires to present a new standard for live performances and passionate art.
