Global Education Center says
Journey with us through the history of poetry in the African American Experience. Historical poetry has become the go to genre for the reclamation of (s)heroes and the rescuing of muted and silenced voices of oppressed peoples. Marilyn Nelson, Natasha Trethewey, Tyehimba Jess, and Adrian Matejka have all contributed vivid award-winning collections of verse that exhume the true stories behind key historical figures, musicians, and infamous athletes. Mr. Walker is the author of four such collections. His workshop will lead participants through this interrogation process, sharpening and utilizing the important and necessary tools of empathy, memory, research, and imagination.

This project is funded in part by a grant from Humanities
Tennessee, an independent affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, with additional support from Tennessee Arts Commission, Metro-Nashville Arts Commission and National Endowment for the Arts.
