Poetry for Black Lives: A Reading and Conversation
Lesley University MFA Program in Creative Writing, the Boston Public Library, and the Boston Mayor’s Office of Arts & Culture present Poetry for Black Lives: A Reading and Conversation, which showcases contemporary elegies and critical ruminations from the recent volume Revisiting the Elegy in the Black Lives Matter Era (Routledge, 2020). The co-editors of the volume, Sequoia Maner, darlene anita scott, Emily Ruth Rutter, will join former Boston Poet Laureate and contributor to the volume, Danielle Legros Georges, in conversation about the sociopolitical inequities and artistic impulses that compel Black elegy, as well as the roles that artists, activists, and teachers play in the Movement for Black Lives. BPL President David Leonard will introduce this program.
