The annual Naomi Long Madgett Poetry Award, established in 1993, has helped shine a spotlight on African American writers–recognizing 20 young poets to-date and attracting the attention of major publishing houses. This program of readings and dialogue will reflect on the careers of five of the awardees: 2011 Kresge Eminent Artist Bill Harris, Claude Wilkinson, Nagueyalti Warren, Edward Bruce Bynum and Esperanza Cintrón. Madgett will also read from her own work at this event.
