Event description

Description

WE, TOO, SING AMERICA

Our title is a homage to the opening words of a Langston Hughes' poem, which begins, "I, too, sing America. I am the darker brother..." and concludes, "I, too, am America."

His words remind us that the American story is no more one color than it is one gender or one nationality or one creed. What's true in our civic culture is true as well in our literary culture. The African-American story in poetry, fiction and nonfiction is the American story. Remove it and America's story is a remnant -- not a whole cloth.

This seminar will explore the voice and contribtutions of African-American writers and writing. Our panelists include poet Frank X Walker, nonfiction author Ann Hagedorn, journalist/essayist Kathy Y. Wilson, and novelist Sheila Williams. Dr. Kristine Yohe of NKU will moderate.

Please join us for this free symposium, which will feature:

  • Readings by each writer
  • A discussion of the panelists
  • Q&A with the audience

This symposium is free but there is limited seating so please RSVP. Share this link with friends who might be interested.
