TUESDAY FEBRUARY 18th WRITING & POETRY SERIES
feat. WALLACE BULLOCK
For Black History month of 2020 Wallace will perform a one man dramatic presentation on African-American poets. This performance will be a homage to our black poets. He will perform pieces from black spirituals, gospels, and the blues. These folk traditions are the origin of African-American poetry. Covering poets such as Phyllis Wheatley, Paul Laurence Dunbar, Langston Hughes, Sterling A. Brown, Margret Walker and Amiri Baraka, he will also include two poets who are not well known; Uriel H. Wallace and Louis Reyes Rivera. He will also perform pre-rap pieces from The Last Poets and Gil Scott-Heron.
