Join us for a celebration of Black Poets. Rare materials from Special Collections and Archives will be on display including works by Langston Hughes, Margaret Walker, and Nikki Giovanni. Stop by to read a poem or visit our Poetry Station to make a poem yourself: we'll provide the supplies for blackout and cut & paste poetry; you bring your imagination! 

This event will be in Group Area D of the Main Library, right next to Food for Thought Cafe on the 1st floor.
