Poetry & The African American Experience
February 22 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm CST
Global Education Center and our Line Breaks Literary Reading Series presents Dr. Haki Madhubuti, author, educator, scholar and founder of Third World Press. Dr. Madhubuti is known for writing experimental, free-verse, politically charged poetry with a staccato rhythm. For this project, he will focus on the history and culture of African Americans as expressed through poetry, examining poetry’s relevance to modern life. It will include a reading, followed by audience discussion, and a corresponding writing workshop.
Humanities Tennessee is pleased to provide partial funding for the History, Culture, Myths and Folktales arts programming series presented by Global Education Center.
