Furious Flower III

V. Gabbin, Joanne
This grouping looks at the centripetal and centrifugal forces shaping Black poetry today, both collective practices and growing ties with the poets and poetry of the world-wide African Diaspora. These eight poets speak to the underlying unity of these two tendencies – a poetry deeply rooted in the history of its people. Poets in this episode: Thomas Sayers Ellis, Patricia Smith, Frank X Walker, Afaa Michael Weaver, Brenda Marie Osbey, Kwame Dawes, Samantha Thornhill, and Lorna Goodison.
