Designed to foster creativity and self-expression, the Poetry Response Workshop & Album Listening Party will provide a platform for participants to explore the beauty and power of poetry. As we celebrate #NationalPoetryMonth, this workshop, in collaboration with the Chicory Revitalization Project, explores the revolutionary works of the historic Chicory magazine. Once described by Baltimore’s Afro-American newspaper as: “the most authentic microphone of black people talking ever devised”, Chicory magazine was a staple in Baltimore during the civil rights era and will provide an inspirational backdrop for this exciting workshop!

Following the workshop attendees are welcome to join us for a listening party highlighting Gil Scott-Heron’s 1971 debut album, Pieces of a Man. Led by The Needle’s Eye Academy, an Eastern Shore Literary Group, this program will afford attendees an opportunity to pen prose inspired by Heron’s poetry and music.
