We're going to be discussing Kevin Young on Thursday, February 25 and then visiting the Manuscript and Rare Book Library (MARBL) on Tuesday, March 2. Coincidentally, Young is both a poet and the curator of the Raymond Danowski Poetry Archive, the largest poetry archive in the world. Watch this film by Emory University to introduce you to both MARBL and Kevin Young. He talks about many of the poets we have read for this class!
This is an optional long video, but it links Kevin Young to Kara Walker. The reading and discussion is presented alongside Walker's exhibit.
