Open Minds Book Discussion: "Kontemporary Amerikan Poetry"

Thursday, April 25, 2024 - 6:30pm to 8:00pm
KC Museum, 3218 Gladstone Blvd.

John Murillo’s book, “Kontemporary Amerikan Poetry,” is an examination of the legacy of institutional, accepted violence against Blacks and Latinos and the personal and societal wreckage wrought by long histories of subjugation. This book, published in 2020, won the Kingsley Tufts Poetry Award in 2021. Join us in celebration of National Poetry Month for a discussion and dissection of some of the selected poems in Murillo’s book at the Kansas City Museum with Glenn North, Kansas City Museum Director of Inclusive Learning who is also a Rockhurst University adjunct faculty of English. This FREE program is presented in collaboration between the Rockhurst University Center for Arts and Letters and the Kansas City Museum. Please register here  in advance.
