EAU CLAIRE -- A Touch of REALLITY (Refine Everyone All Life Lives in the Young), an unusual trio of poets who bring the African oral tradition to bear on contemporary issues, will be presented Friday, Nov. 7, at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.

The performance will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the Council Fire Room, Davies Center.

A Touch of REALLITY brings together multiple variations on voices of oppressed and enraged people to words. Dedicated to the uplifting of humanity, the group displays the range of emotions felt on some of today's most complicated subjects -- AIDS, the use of the "n word," television's effect on American children, and the day-to-day experiences of a young black male.

Craig Knight, Horace Jackson and Tamara Davis met as students at Kean College of New Jersey. The trio has opened shows for The Fugees, The Lost Boys and Last Poets, and is now performing on college and university campuses throughout the country.

Tickets are $5 ($3 with a UW-Eau Claire student ID card) at the University Service Center, (715) 836-3727, and will be sold at the door.

The program is sponsored by the University Activities Commission of the UW-Eau Claire Student Senate.
