Cave Canem Legacy Conversation: Page & Stage

About

Explore the love-hate relationship between spoken-word and written poetry, which remains fraught in the literary world and often incites questions of race, class, and respectability. This reading by and dialogue between page and stage poets features Pulitzer Prize-winner Tyehimba Jess and Kingsley Tufts Poetry Prize Award-winner Patricia Smith, aiming to both deconstruct and illuminate the multitudes within poetry and form. Poet Nate Marshall moderates.
