I Love This Poem: A Celebrity Reading
The latest installment in a series of literary and social justice events. The evening features intimate poetry readings from some of the most compelling voices in film, television, theater, and the world of books. Poetry has long been a force for personal growth, expression, and social justice. We are proud to highlight two of our students who will also share their favorite poem. We hope you enjoy our all-star cast in support of our mission of promoting literacy for racial justice and social progress.
