Event description

Description

What is a home? Is it a physical space, a country, a state of mind, or all of these combined? Freedom Forums: Conflict of Home considers how realities in our communities and country intersect to shape, threaten and enhance our perceptions of home.

Poet and social justice educator Ama Codjoe leads this reading, discussion and writing workshop event with presenters who will share work resonant with the theme.

They include, award-winning poet and educator Victor Hernandez Cruz, Beneath the Spanish (2017); Jason Koo, More than Mere Light (2018); Ladan Osman, The Kitchen-Dweller’s Testimony (2015); and Feminist Press’ Jisu Kim, aquiring editor of the publication Go Home!

Poets Kyle Dacuyan and Patricia Spears Jones of the newly constituted American Poets Congress will reflect on the concept of home as well, and audience members are invited to join in the conversation. Writing workshops will follow the discussion, and refreshments will be provided.

Go Home! the Feminist Press’ anthology of Asian diasporic writers, published in collaboration with the Asian American Writers Workshop, is included at a discounted rate with pre-sale General Admission tickets.


Freedom Forums: Conflict of Home
will be bookended by programs in New York City in collaboration with Dialogue Arts Project and Urban Word NYC; in the Adirondacks with the Adirondack Center for Writing; and on Long Island with Herstory Writers Workshop.
