An Evening of Literary Excellence - (Poetry Lecture & Book-signing)
Monday, July 25 2011, 6:30pm - 8:30pm

Two national award-winning poets, Lamont B. Steptoe (cited by James Balwin as "a most valuable brother witness") & Sandra Turner Barnes (poet, author, jazz vocalist & lyricist and arts administrator) from the Phila/NJ area will discuss their approach to and success with writing on issues of personal and social relevance to the Black community.

 

Presenting writings through the lens of poets whose passion for truth concerning historic and contemporary realities affecting Black America, both poets have received recognition and accolades from a variety of arenas, not the least of which is the stage of the African-American psyche.

Doc Powell will provide musical accompaniment (Djembe) to Ms. Turner-Barnes and Mr. Steptoe during their poetry presentations.

This free-to-the-community lecture and book-signing will be hosted by Washington-area poet and literary activist, Sistah Joy. Groups are encouraged to register in advance as seating is limited. A light-fare reception will conclude the event.

Please silence electronic devices upon arrival as this event will be recorded.

Location : Black Studies Center - MLK, Jr. Memorial Library, 901 G St., NW, Rm. 316, Washington, DC 20001
