Poetry off the Shelf: Cave Canem Legacy Conversation: Toi Derricotte & Cornelius Eady
Toi Derricotte and Cornelius Eady founded Cave Canem Foundation in 1996 to remedy the underrepresentation and isolation of African American poets in the literary landscape. Cave Canem is a home for the many voices of African American poetry and is committed to cultivating the artistic and professional growth of African American poets. Cornelius Eady is the author of eight books of poetry, including Hardheaded Weather (2008). Toi Derricotte has published five collections of poetry, most recently The Undertaker’s Daughter (2011). The conversation will be moderated by Tracie D. Hall, the director of the Joyce Foundation's Culture Program and a Cave Canem fellow.
