Reading: Voices Beyond Bondage

Pen and Brush welcomes Erika DeSimone and Fidel Louis for a special presentation from their new book, Voices Beyond Bondage: An Anthology of Verse by African Americans of the 19th Century. This collection includes 150 poems taken exclusively from America’s early black-owned newspapers, and celebrates a literary movement that until now has been ignored in American history. In honor of National Poetry Month and Pen and Brush's mission to promote literature by women, the reading will highlight poems by women featured in the book.
