The Poetry Project


S. Erin Batiste & Courtney Faye Taylor

© 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, their work, Batiste and Taylor weave personal and cultural histories towards memories of the future reimagined, reclaimed, and transformed.

Featuring a guest introduction by Ronaldo V. Wilson


Masks are required at all Poetry Project events unless otherwise specifically noted. While we will have masks available we encourage you to come with a mask for the reading. We also encourage all event attendees to take a rapid test the day of the event before heading to the church.

This in-person event will also be livestreamed via The Poetry Project's YouTube. Livestream captions will be available via a StreamText link or the CC button on YouTube's player.

Open CART captioning is scheduled for most in-person events.
