Making Her Mark Spotlight: Poetry and Movement Building | Digital Readings
Thu, April 8, 2021 6:30 P.M.
Live readings of historical and contemporary poetry that center movement building.
Movements to expand voting rights have always used spoken word and poetry as modes of expression and connection. Join staff from the Free Library's Division of Cultural and Civic Engagement and the Literature Department to hear live readings of historical and contemporary poetry that center movement building. Along the way, we'll share resources available through the library that bring together poetic expression and the processes that define participatory democracy. This program is inspired by the Free Library of Philadelphia's Making Her Mark exhibit, now on view online at www.freelibrary.org/exhibitions . Poetry readings from: Maleka Fruean, Autumn Konopka, Angel Hogan, and Marissa Johnson-Valenzuela.
