MLK Commemorative Presentation 2015
Wed, 02/04/2015 - 7:00pm - 8:30pm
Johnson Theater, Paul Creative Arts Center
U.S. Poet Laureate Natasha Trethewey will deliver the commemorative presentation. Ms Trethewey's presentation provides new experiences and viewpoints on difference. She is the author of four collections of poetry, Domestic Work; Bellocq's Ophelia; Native Guard (for which she was awarded the Pulitzer Prize) and her most recent book Thrall, a collection of poems that explore the historical, cultural and social forces that determine the roles consigned to a mixed race daughter and her white father. She is also the author of the prose work Beyond Katrina: A Meditation on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
A book signing with Natasha Trethewey will take place immediate following the MLK Presentation in the Art Gallery at PCAC. All are welcome to attend.
