Join the “Sheroes of Poetry” who will illuminate our understanding of how race, and being a woman of color, is viewed in this society. As part of a series of events surrounding the 35th Annual Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration, “Sheroes of Poetry” brings together a dynamic group of women to share their unique, yet shared, stories in poetry-form.

Sponsored by the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, the 35th Annual Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration Planning Committee, and the Office of Community Engagement, “Sheroes of Poetry” challenges audience members to open themselves to the lived experience of others and reimagine how women of color should be viewed in this world.
