“We will not remain silent while this nation murders black people. We have a right to be angry.”
Café Libro Open-Mike hosts the second #BlackPoetsSpeakOut event in Austin. Black poets and allies are invited to read a poem by a black poet in response to police violence and be recorded for the BPSO website: www.blackpoetsspeakout.org
A panel on art and activism will immediately follow the reading. Panelists include:
Amanda Johnston – Black Poets Speak Out
Florinda Bryant – Creative Action
Lilia Rosas – Resistencia Bookstore / Red Salmon Arts
LaKiza Fowler – Sister Seeking Justice / The People’s Task Force
