The host of BET's "My Two Cents," Bryonn Bain travels to Portland Friday, June 5, to perform his new work, "Lyrics on Lockdown," from noon to 1:30 p.m. at the Multicultural Center,  Smith Memorial Student Union room 228, Portland State University. Bain will also talk about how he uses hip hop, spoken word and art to address prison issues. Wrongfully imprisoned during his second year in Harvard Law School, Bain wrote The Village Voice cover story "Walking While Black," which drew the largest response in the history of the nation's most widely-read progressive newspaper. He currently stars in the off Broadway hip hop theater show "Auction Block to Hip Hop." Check out his music and verse at myspace.com/musicbryonnbain and his website, www.BryonnBain.com
