About the Event
At a time when the nation grapples with long-standing racial injustices and police brutality, two UW professors — who are also poets, a married couple, and featured in the Winter 2020 issue of On Wisconsin magazine — will read their important poetry about Black identity and the brutal realities of being Black in the U.S. They’ll then talk about the process and research behind their work. This program, moderated by freelance editor and poet Ann Shaffer MA’90, will also include a discussion and a Q & A session. Don’t miss this imperative program — sign up today.
