Poetry at McLeod with Yona Harvey

Saturday, September 10, 2022

In this innovative series, African American poets reclaim the plantation landscape by exploring the past, present, future, and the imagined in their own voices. Often representing pain, suffering, survival, and perseverance, these poets confirm that plantations are places of conscience. One poet recalled, "Reading poems where my ancestors were was a return. On their behalf I was returning with power. It belongs to them. I would be a part of reclaiming it."

All ages. This activity takes place outdoors. No pre-registration needed. Online registration is not allowed for this activity, please Park & Program Services by phone at (843) 795-4386 or by email during regular business hours for registration information.
