Lift Every Voice Program: Poetry Reading & Spoken Word Performances
UHCL is pleased to take part in this two-day program from the Library of America to celebrate the 250-year tradition of African American poetry. Lift Every Voice is a year-long, nationwide celebration with signature events that aims to highlight the richness and diversity of African American poetic imagination and its central place in American poetry.
The first program was held on Feb. 12. The second day of the program is Friday, Feb. 26, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. This day will focus on poetry reading and spoken word performances, planned as a hybrid virtual event with both an in-person and online audience.
