The recent anthology Of Poetry and Protest gives voice to the current conversation about race in America as it has coalesced in protest against police killings of African American boys and men, and serves as an excellent introduction to African American poetry. Tonight’s readings feature contributors Sonia Sanchez, C.S. Giscombe, devorah major, Al Young, and editor Michael Warr. Program includes a wine reception beginning at 6pm. Come early and purchase the book!
This event is supported in part by Poets & Writers
