The History and Future of Black Literature: A Black History Month Event

February 25, 2021 @ 3:00 pm

Featuring Khalisa Rae, Dexter L. Booth, Nordette Adams, Karisma Price, and Tée V. Smith, with conversation moderated by Maurice Carlos Ruffin, Red Hen Press is excited to bring this reading and conversation to your viewing screens!
Join us for a reading and conversation on the history and future of Black literature, especially in the context of the effect Youth Poet Laureate Amanda Gorman is having on poetry and visibility in this country. Highlighting our partnership with the Peauxdunque Writer’s Alliance and our new Ann Petry Award, which awards book publication, a $3000 award, and a four-week residency at The Community Library’s Ernest and Mary Hemingway House in Ketchum, Idaho for a Black prose writer, we also bring in Khalisa Rae and Dexter L. Booth, two Black poets with forthcoming books from Red Hen Press, due out this spring.

We’re so excited for this collaboration and look forward to you joining us!

Streamed live on redhen.org, facebook.com/redhenpress, and youtube.com/redhenpressbeats.
