Hush Now: Poems to Read Aloud Poetry Workshop and Reading by Annette Daniels Taylor
Poet and playwright Annette Daniels Taylor is an award-winning poet, playwright and activist. Her workshop (6:00-6:30) will focus on creating blackout poems, using biographies of former enslaved African Americans. The following poetry readings will be drawn from her book, “Hush Now, Poems to Read Aloud,” a collection of the lyrical verse and prose narrated by maids, slaves, sharecroppers, and field workers living in America.
Made possible by funds from the National Endowment for the Arts, and Poets & Writers, with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
