Bravo to poets!
After yet another committee meeting last week, I sighed to a colleague that I miss the days when I used to hang-out more with poets. I also miss teaching ethnic literature. But wait! I do incorporate literature in my other courses. In fact, this coming week, Shailja Patel will speak to my students. Shailja is a poet and performance artist. Migritude, the book and performance, demonstrates how an artist can integrate poetry and activism into a beautiful work of art on stage. Much like what Eileen Tabios has done in the past with her performance piece, I Take Thee English.
Looking forward to Wed and Shailja.
