The Poetry Project


Anaïs Duplan & Golden

Watch video here


Through the work of poets and visual artists Anaïs Duplan and Golden, we are offered the opportunity to see this world clearly—which is to say in history and in relation—as a way to envision another, a liberation beyond accomplishment, a nation so “new new new” it’s no nation at all.

We encourage enthusiastic readers and listeners to engage more deeply with Anaïs Duplan's work by purchasing his books. Duplan's Blackspace: On the Poetics of an Afrofuture is available from Black Ocean and Take This Stallion from Brooklyn Arts Presse.
