Join us for a very special evening!
In conjunction with the thought-provoking exhibition Searching for the Heart of Black Identity, the Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft will host 'An Evening with Affrilachian Poets' on Thursday, March 18, 2010 at 6:00pm.
The evening will include poetry readings and stories by poet, Louisville native and NAACP nominee Mitchell L.H. Douglas and multidisciplinary artist Frank X. Walker, both co-founders of the Kentucky-based literary group 'the Affrilachian* Poets.' Additional guest poets include Ricardo Nazario Colon, Makalani Bandeli and Jude McPherson.
The Museum s Street Gallery will take on a coffeehouse atmosphere when Affrilachian poets, friends and supporters set the tone for an inspirational gathering of vision and voice. Refreshments will be provided by Heine Brothers Coffee and music will be provided by local jazz musician Ron Jones. Ron is an alto saxophonist and the leader of the Ron Jones Quartet, which tours throughout the Midwest performing at Universities, jazz clubs and jazz festivals.
This event is presented by E-On, with support from Brown-Forman and Heine Brothers Coffee.
