Poetry Workshop & Album Listening Party

April 6 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Designed to foster creativity and self-expression, the Poetry Response Workshop & Album Listening Party will provide a platform for participants to explore the beauty and power of poetry as we celebrate National Poetry Month.

This workshop explores the revolutionary works of the historic Chicory magazine in partnership with Chicory Revitalization Project. Once described by Baltimore’s Afro-American newspaper as: “the most authentic microphone of black people talking ever devised”, Chicory magazine was a staple in Baltimore during the civil rights era and will provide an inspirational backdrop for this exciting workshop!

Attendees will also enjoy a listening party highlighting Gil Scott-Heron’s 1971 debut album, Pieces of a Man. Exercise your creativity and participate in penning prose inspired by Heron’s poetry and music. This activity will be led by The Needle’s Eye Academy, an Eastern Shore literary empowerment group.
