First Person Art Festival Continues- Great Upcoming Events

Ruth Naomi Floyd, Toni Morrison, Sonia Sanchez and Rita Dove




Last Wednesday, Drexel University hosted an amazing event, in partnership with the First Person Arts Festival,  where Toni Morrison and Rita Dove came to town to celebrate Sonia Sanchez and her year of service as Philadelphia's poet laureate.  It was an evening of conversation and song.  Singer, composer and photographer Ruth Naomi Floyd graced the event with her incredible voice.

  1. Thanks for sharing, Octavia. This seems like it was an epic event. Were you able to attend?
    This month seems compelling for Words Without Borders. I'm not really familiar with this organization but just reading the stories and themes discussed in the overhead; everything sounds intriguing.
