Black Poetry and Black Lives Matter Presentation
Black poets and educators will discuss Black poetry as an art form, ranging across traditional poetic genres and traditions to hip-hop and rap. They will discuss how artists have responded to the Black experience of state-sponsored violence, from slavery to police brutality in the 21st century, and the role of poetry in celebrating and uplifting Black culture.
