Event Details

As part of its All of the Sky: Five Poets, Five Saturdays series, The Aldrich will host five noted contemporary poets–Claudia Rankine, Mahogany L. Browne, Rosebud Ben-Oni, Nathalie Handal, and Emily Skillings–for Saturday readings held in person in the Museum beginning on July 9, 2022.

The five poets selected for this series each bring their varied perspectives from a diverse range of backgrounds and will read selections that reflect the role feminist writers, artists, and leaders have played in their practices. A talkback and book signing will follow each reading.

An acclaimed performance artist and activist, Mahogany L. Browne is the Executive Director of JustMedia, a media literacy initiative with a focus on the criminal legal system. Vinyl Moon, Chlorine Sky, Woke: A Young Poets Call to Justice, Woke Baby, Black Girl Magic, and I Remember Death By Its Proximity to What I Love are among her books for readers of all ages. Browne is also the founder of Woke Baby Book Fair, a traveling diverse reading campaign.
