Mobilizing Through Poetry: In Honor of MLK


Thursday, Jan. 13
6-7:15 PM ET

online event, open to the public and all mentees & mentors

Poetry has the power to change someone’s day, their mind and even the world. It is the articulation of dreams and hopes. Who better to honor with poems than Martin Luther King Jr. who shared his dream in the form of poetry?

Influenced by Audre Lorde’s belief in using the pen to fight the fight, join spoken word artist Brittany Barker as she shares her poetry and invites you to write your own.
