Culture Series: DC Poetry Scene in the 90s

December 7, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


This event will consist of a reading of poems by Kenny Carroll, Quique Aviles, Patrick Washington and Sami Miranda. Following the reading we will show clips from oral histories that were done as part of a humanities grants project, where people involved in the 90s poetry as open mic host, writing programs managers shared their stories. We will end the program with a conversation between the poets in which they reflect on the community that was built during that period and how that community exists in the present day.

ASL Interpretation will be provided.
