Poetry in Times of Peril: Four Women’s Voices

July 14 from 8:00 pm - 9:15 pm

Free

From the ancient Book of Psalms to contemporary hip-hop, poetry has served as a vital channel through which to express our deepest yearnings, frustrations, and hopes.

How might words of poetry help us respond to the current crisis of COVID-19 and the national reckoning with racial injustice?

Join us as we engage four outstanding woman poets from different walks of life for a cross-cultural and intergenerational reading and discussion. Two of the poets are Christian, and two are Jewish.

Featured Poets:
– Alondra Bobadilla
– Marilyn Nelson
– Alicia Ostriker
– Alicia Jo Rabins

Moderator – Dr. Judith Rosenbaum, Jewish Women’s Archive

Greetings:
– Rabbi Or Rose, Miller Center of Hebrew College
– Rev. Paul Raushenbush, Interfaith Youth Core

Sponsors:

– Jewish Women’s Archive
– Miller Center for Interreligious Learning & Leadership of Hebrew College
– Interfaith Youth Core
