Words to Action: Poetry and Social Justice Workshops

May 15 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm


This event is part of One Book, One Philadelphia 2021 centering Jericho Brown’s collection of poems, THE TRADITION.

These writing workshops for teens are inspired by the One Book, One Philadelphia 2021 selection, Jericho Brown’s The Tradition. Led by Philadelphia Youth Poet Laureate Cydney Brown, learn how to turn your thoughts and feelings about the current political climate and Black Lives Matter Movement into poetry. We will explore how to get your thoughts onto paper, formulate your poem, and recite with passion. The end product will be a video of all our poems.
