Poetry and Civil Rights (Lift Every Voice Program Series)
African American poetry has long reflected and been inspired by the abolitionist and later the civil rights movements. Join us for a discussion of famous civil rights poems and how the modern social justice movement is reflected in poetry today.
This program is part of Lift Every Voice: Why African American Poetry Matters, a national public humanities initiative of Library of America presented in partnership with The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture with generous support from The National Endowment for the Humanities, The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and Emerson Collective.
Presenters: Michael Downs (History) & Madison Durapau (English), TCC Faculty
