© Ivanna Baranova

S. Erin Batiste and Courtney Faye Taylor are two poets focused unfailingly on the material conditions and lived and living experiences of Black women in the United States. Across a range of styles, genres, and forms, Batiste and Taylor weave personal and cultural histories towards memories of the future reimagined, reclaimed, and transformed.

Featuring guest introductions by Shayla Lawz and Ronaldo V. Wilson
