Nuestra América Poetry Reading

May 5, 2018 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Event Navigation

“Nuestra América” celebrates the unique voices and styles of writers and poets who live in Southern California. The title of the poetry reading refers to José Martí’s seminal essay, which was first published in 1891 in La Revista Ilustrada de Nueva York (New York) and then in El Partido Liberal (Mexico City). In his essay, Martí highlights the independent spirit of the people of the Americas. Please join us and experience the distinct performances of Tristan Douglas Acker, Alex Avila, Juan Delgado, Kelly Dortch, Allyson Jeffredo, Lilliana Gallegos, George Hammons, Timothy Hatch, Angela Peñaredondo, Daiana Rodriguez, Isabel Quintero, Micah Tasaka, as part of the exhibition, The Institute of Ceramics and Alliance. A variety of themes will be touched on, and since the reading is on Cinco De Mayo, some of the performers will speak to what they cherish and what they reclaim about nuestra América.
