A Splendid Wake 5: Last Year’s Program on YouTube

Many thanks to Racheal Langosh for her videotape talents. And while you’re here, check out Barbara Goldberg’s talk about the late poet Moshe Dor. David Fry reads a tribute to Nan Fry; Myra Sklarew, along with the 2017 Youth Poet Laureate of Prince George’s County, Samantha Jackson, and 2017 Youth Poet Ambassador Isaiah Holloway  presents a multi-vocal tribute to Sterling Brown and the Howard University Poets. Patrick Washington shares a multi-media reminiscence of the history of the DC poetry slam. Kimberly Schraf and Jaqueline Jules present a lively discussion of kid’s poetry in DC. And the young poets share poems by Gwendolyn Brooks in order to honor her.

We were fortunate to have DC poet Ginger Ingalls emcee for us.
