Songs of Dismantling: Standing as Witness in the 21st Century

Poets Randall Mann and  Fernando Pérez read poetry and discuss the poetic experience as a method of cultural healing. Moderated by Ingrid Rojas Contreras

A night of reading and discussion where "Standing as witness" is the over-riding theme. An exploration of the demonization and marginalization of the "other" in the U.S. What do we need to admit to ourselves to move beyond injustice and totalitarian impulses. Poetry is explored as a vehicle to transform culture.
