Durham is becoming a national hotbed for spoken-word poetry. The Bull City Slam Team has been successful at national competitions and several festivals have been held in Durham to celebrate the genre. The history of slam poetry in the Triangle area and several area poets are recognized. The poetry has helped many through difficult struggles in their life and has attracted a church-like atmosphere for some.
