Derricotte, Toi. Captivity. Pittsburgh: University of Pittsburgh Press, 1989.


Tongo Eisen-Martin reads new work commissioned as part of the Art for Justice series. Timoteio Padilla represents Sustainable Nations in an opening presentation.


Jericho Brown reads from across his published body of work: Please (2008), The New Testament (2014), and The Tradition (2019), his Pulitzer Prize-winning collection. He reads poems that touch on childhood and family, southern Black culture, racial injustice, and violence— from the home to the nation. He answers audience questions on musicality, his approach to writing and teaching poetry, and his invented form, the duplex.
