Give yourself something intellectual to brag about this summer, by paying a little evening visit to Downtown's Central Library. In the form of reading/discussion, The Poetry Society of America celebrates the lives and legacies of three iconic black poets from the 20th CenturyJames Weldon Johnson, Countee Cullen and Gwendolyn Brooks. Distinguished contemporary poets Wanda Coleman, Major Jackson and Brighde Mullins will honor their predecessors' work, discussing its influence and reading poems of their own in tribute. Bring your friends, both the literate and otherwise—this event is open to all and admission is free.
