This special event, supported in part by a grant to the Academy of American Poets from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation in support of Poetry Coalition programs, is free and open to the public.
The Poetry Center at San Francisco State University, as part of a nationwide series of Poetry Coalition programs under the shared rubric “I am deliberate / and afraid / of nothing”—Poetry and Protest, has dedicated Thursday March 19, 2020, as a day to honor the legacy of poets Audre Lorde and Pat Parker. This daylong series of events will be a gathering of writers and artists, students, and public audience, “after” and in honor of the work, spirit, and continued influence of these two Black lesbian friends, dedicated activists, and outstanding, outspoken poets.
