Folger Shakespeare Library presents O.B. Hardison Poetry, February 11th at 7:30 PM ET, with Tracy K. Smith & Maurice Manning
From the organizers:
Poet Maurice Manning will join with recent Poet Laureate Tracy K. Smith for a live reading that speaks to the words and actions of Abraham Lincoln. After a virtual tour of President Lincoln’s Cottage in Washington, D.C., Manning and Smith will read from their work. Manning’s latest collection Railsplitter is in the posthumous voice of Lincoln. Smith’s most recent book, Wade in the Water takes an unflinching look at the ravages of slavery, the lives of Black Civil War soldiers and America’s history on race, gender, immigration and more.
