Rise Up! Poems of Protest, Poems of Praise

Mari Fitz Wynn Poem Reading

This is a poetry collection that weaves the voice of the past, the poems of a grandfather born to enslaved parents, and poems of the present, those of his granddaughter.

These two hearts were linked not only by love but also by the travesties of racism and slavery and the devastation and waste of war. This event is free. 

Date: Thursday, June 15
Time: 5:00 p.m. - 6:30 p.m.
Ages: 13 and up
