CANCELED – Art for Justice Poetry Reading: Hanif Abdurraqib
Due to concerns about the new coronavirus, this event has been canceled.
We are proud to present Hanif Abdurraqib, who will read from his work commissioned for the Poetry Center's Art for Justice grant. After the reading, there will be a short Q&A and a book signing.
The University of Arizona Poetry Center's Art for Justice grant funds a three-year project that will commission new work from leading writers in conversation with the crisis of mass incarceration in the United States, with the goal of creating new awareness and empathy through presentation and publication. In particular, through the work of leading poets, the project will seek to confront racial inequities within the criminal justice system to promote social justice and change.
Hanif Abdurraqib is a writer from the eastside of Columbus, Ohio. His latest books are "Go Ahead In The Rain" and "A Fortune For Your Disaster."
