Join us for Speech and Spirit, an evening about the transmission of political conviction and ecological consciousness across generations. This multi-genre collaboration sits at the intersection of literary studies, Black and Indigenous performance art, and the pursuit of collective transcendence. The event emerges from a set of conversations between old friends about how best to honor the traditions they love and study. It will feature live music, song, and poetry.
