Healing Democracy: Poetic Language and Restoring Black Humanity
Assistant Professor of Creative Writing, Chanda Feldman, explores how contemporary poems by Black American poets speak to anti-Black violence and engage with experiences of violence in ways that transform degradation into restoration. What the poems restore is Black peoples’ humanity in the face of historically denied equal treatment.
