The Folger Poetry Series is collaborating with the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, on February 8 at 7:30pm to present a poetic mix-tape in response to the Rock Hall’s exhibition It’s Been Said All Along: Voices of Rage, Hope, and Empowerment.
This reading will take place virtually on the Zoom platform.
Poets Patricia Spears Jones, Nate Marshall, Reuben Jackson, and Ashley M. Jones (no relation) read their own poetry and use it to explore the rage, hope and empowerment embedded in the historic musical legacy of such artists as Public Enemy, Nina Simone, Aretha Franklin, James Brown, and others.
The reading will artfully combine poetry and music from the exhibition.
