THE SPOKEN SOUL FESTIVAL SET TO SHOWCASE THE STRENGTH AND CREATIVITY OF SOUTH FLORIDA WOMEN ARTISTS
October celebrates Women’s Small Business and Arts and Humanities month. Spoken Soul Festival (SSF), in partnership with the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County, will spotlight and celebrate how women change and impact our world with their presentation of Spoken Soul Showcase Vol. 13 on October 3, 2020 at 7 p.m. Originally slated for earlier this year but postponed due to the magnitude of these unprecedented times, the creators of SSF will transfer the creativity and collaboration of their showcase online. The virtual realm now gives them the ability to share this thought-provoking program on a global scale. This year’s theme celebrates the Woman's Right To Vote and highlights the commemoration of the 19th Amendment.
