I joined my friend, poet E. Ethelbert Miller on his radio program, “On The Margin” from WPFW FM in Washington, D.C., the “Jazz and Justice station in the nation’s capital.” Ethelbert is a friend, a wonderful poet, and literary activist. You can listen to the recording of our talk below. During the program, I read eight poems from Raising King.

I’m grateful to bring Raising King and some thoughts about being a writer in America today to the Robert L. Giron Lecture Series at Montgomery College in Takoma Park, Maryland. The event will be on Zoom and I’ll post the link here as soon as I have it. Robert L. Giron served in the college’s English Department for more than thirty years. He’s also a wonderful poet and friend. I’m thrilled to be part of this lecture series in his name.
