Community Conversations About Race (CCAR): Examining Community and Race Through the Lens of Poetry

Wednesday, April 14 at 12:00pm to 12:45pm

Virtual Event

Examining Community and Race Through the Lens of Poetry is a 45-minute virtual presentation led by the current City of Philadelphia Poet Laureate and community based artist, Trapeta B. Mayson. 

Trapeta will present original poems that reflect insights around race and community, a short discussion about her activities that are embedded in community artistic practice, and a brief interactive group poem making activity. The presentation will be followed by a Q/A session. 

The presentation will demonstrate the importance of promoting writing, and specifically poetry as a means of exposing issues related to race and community and the need to amplify marginalized voices.
