32nd Annual Celebration of African American Poets and Their Poetry

African American Health and Wellness

On February 19, 2022, from 10-12 noon PST held virtually on Zoom, will be the 32nd Annual Celebration of African American Poets and Their Poetry.

This year’s 2022 theme from Dr. Carter G Woodson’s Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH) is “African American Health and Wellness.” However, all themes are welcome.

This year program is dedicated to the memories of Al Young and bell hooks.

The event will feature Baba Kalamu ya Salaam and perhaps you. Contact the event host in advance if you are coming and you are a poet of African American descent.

There will be open mic sprinkled in with featured poets.

Last year, was the first time the Celebration went virtual and it went really well. It was a great program honoring two poets who made their transitions late 2020 and early 2021: Adam David Miller (AD Miller) and QR Hand.

This year’s event will start and end
earlier. We are looking once again for in-kind sponsors who can get the word out.
