During the racially-charged summer of 2016, Don't Be Nice follows a team of young black Slam Poets on their journey to the National Championship.

For slam poetry coach Lauren Whitehead to “be nice” is to stay on the surface of things, to prop up the status quo and, for black people, to be what white culture demands.

Expect stunning performances with deeply personal stories of creative struggle and self discovery.
