Race, Violence, and Verse (NYC)
Join activist writers and spoken word artists at a writer’s workshop examining the impact of race and violence in communities of color on April 16 in NYC.
On Thursday, April 16, the Office of Multicultural Affairs (OMA) will host a day-long panel and writing workshop: Race, Violence, and Verse on the NYC Campus.
The program will feature a panel of writers and spoken word artists that addresses the day’s theme through lenses of race, gender, sexual orientation, and immigration—and how those experiences have impacted their writing. Equally as important, participants will have the opportunity to participate in a writing workshop facilitated by the panelists during the second-half of the program.
