“Hidden Voices: African American Writers in Wisconsin” will take place Monday, Nov. 23, 5:30-7:30 p.m. online and hosted by the Milwaukee Public Library.
Join three Wisconsin African American writers – poet Fabu, novelist Sherry Lucille, and playwright and novelist Catrina Sparkman – as they discuss their writing in relation to the work of three African American literary giants who also lived and worked in Wisconsin during the 20th century: novelist Jean Toomer, playwright Lorraine Hansberry, and poet Sarah Webster Fabio. Experience poetry, prose, and drama that will shed light on what it means to be African American in Wisconsin today, yesterday, and tomorrow through a multimedia presentation about the work and lives of these literary artists and their interpretations of race in Wisconsin.
