21st Century Verse: The Art of Black Poets with Danielle Legros Georges

10:00 am on Thursday, October 18, 2018
This workshop will focus on the work of selected Black poets writing today. We’ll examine how these writers have addressed violence against black bodies, racism and war, the politics of power, black subjectivity, black joy, love, and the world. Their poems—in their formal strategies and fields of focus—will serve as models for the writing we might engage in ourselves. This workshop is meant as a generative one, one meant to provoke, challenge and inspire us into discussions and ultimately poems.
