2ME4U: Stories of Self-Exploration from the Heart

2ME4U: Stories of Self-Exploration from the Heart


When was the last time you were truly intimate with yourself?

2ME4U is a live talk show format focused on intimate self-exploration for men of color. This series builds community through shared vulnerability and reflective healing.

What It Is:

Men owning their truths - new voices every show

Raw, unfiltered, and unscripted - a safe space to be authentic

Social. Fun. Unorthodox - often taboo wellness topics

What It Aint:

Def poetry slam - no pre-prepped material

Showtime at the Apollo - no heckling

Mortified - no reading or notes allowed, just vulnerable and unfiltered stories

Self aggrandizing or sales - humility is your friend

Grandstanding - honor the time requirements 10 mins (featured); 5 mins (open-micers)

Denzel Herrera-Davis, founder of Create The Space, hosts this series while sharing stories from his life and the lives of others. The team invites you to come hold space, join the conversation, or get on the mic. Feel it. Own it. Release it.

Streaming Begins: 7:00 pm

*Entry to the event will be strictly based on capacity. Coming early is HIGHLY recommended. Walk-ups will be allowed the day of the event as long as there is capacity.

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?

Yes, attendees must be 21+.

Can I just show up day of without a ticket?

You may try (if the event is not sold out seats will be sold); however, space is limited to first come first serve so we suggest you get your ticket in advance.

Will the event start on time?

YES! There will be an MC leading us through some dope interactive sessions. You don't want to be late and miss the fun!

What can I expect?

Expect to have a dope ass time! Expect to challenge your thoughts around vulnerability. You will hear from men of color as they explore their own unadulterated truths on stage, in the format "written to me, for you". Join us to build up this community one intimate conversation at a time.

Is it only for men of color?

Absolutely not. This is an avenue that promotes the safety and culture of sharing. While we lead with men of color, we invite all to participate and share their stories! Visit us here for more information.
