“Echoing the indomitable spirit of the descendants of those who resisted the institutions of slavery in the Caribbean and the struggle for social and economic justice throughout the Caribbean Diaspora,” the Consulate General of Saint Lucia, the Brooklyn-based Caribbean Cultural Theater, and the Caribbean Research Center at Medgar Evers College present “Emancipated Voices – New Generation of Caribbean Poets,” with readings by Vladimir Lucien (St. Lucia), Sounding Ground; Samantha Thornhill (Trinidad and Tobago), Odetta: Queen of Folk; and Tiphanie Yanique (U.S. Virgin Islands), Wife.
The event will be held on Wednesday, August 3, 2016, at 7:00pm, at the Central Brooklyn Campus of Medgar Evers College, located at 1650 Bedford Avenue, Brooklyn, New York. A discussion with the poets will immediately follow. This event is free and open to the public.
