Word Up [Down and All Around]: Poetry of the African-American Experience 
General Event Information
Event Category:

Dates and Times:
February 27, 6:30PM-8:30PM

Five innovative African-American poets -- Lillian-Yvonne Bertram, Duriel Estelle Harris, Ruth Ellen Kocher, Dawn Lundy-Martin and Ronaldo Wilson -- will read and perform selections of their works.

These poets focus on choice and power, subverting the literary tools of dominant cultures as a way of expressing the complexities of African-American selfhood. Their poetry explores topics surrounding identity in its multiple contexts -- including ethnicity, gender and sexual orientation.

Audience members are invited to listen, experience and consider these poems within the context of the African-American experience, as well as in relation to their own place in the world.

Library events and programs are free and everyone is welcome. Registration is not required.
