From the ancient Book of Psalms to contemporary hip-hop, poetry has served as a vital channel through which to express our deepest yearnings, frustrations, and hopes.
How might words of poetry help us respond to the current crisis of COVID-19 and the national reckoning with racial injustice?
Join us as we engage four outstanding woman poets from different walks of life for a cross-cultural and intergenerational reading and discussion.
