Everytime I Talk About... Black Voices in a Time of Change: Poetry, Art, and Music

Drawing on the poetry of the late poet Lucille Clifton, UNL Poets will celebrate the long history of Black poets bringing often uneasy truths to the heart of America.

Conceived, curated and directed by Kwame Dawes, the poets, in conversation with music and visual art, will perform their own compositions and selections of poems by Lucille Clifton whose words continue to resonate in our culture today.

This is a free virtual event, but registration is required in order to receive the link to watch. There is also the option to add a donation to support the Lied Center. The live webcast will also be available on the Lied Center Facebook page.

This event is sponsored by University of Nebraska-Lincoln Chancellor Ronnie Green, UNL Office of Research and Economic Development, and UNL College of Arts and Sciences. It is made possible in part with generous support from the Lied Center’s MOSAIC Circle.
