A Poetic Invitation

Hey folks, I have couple of events I would to invite all my MinneAfricans to.

Saturday December 6, 2008
The Cultural Wellness Center is hosting a book release and signing for me. I will be sharing the stage with the renowed poet and performer, Louis Alemaheyu of Ancestors Energy. The setting will be poetic conversations framed around the idea of what it means to be Black here and today. Louis sums it up in a series of questions: “explore African Identity in the context of here and now; what we see and feel when we look toward home?  What is home now to us?  Relationships/Connections between people of African descent; What goals or dreams should we have together?  What questions come up when you think about our public encounter?  What is important to explore right now?  What does it mean to have a Black family in the White House?”
Come add your voice to the conversation and hear me read from my book, “Bridge Across Atlantic”
Cultural Wellness Center
