POETRY AND THE BATTLE FOR RACIAL EQUITY (IN SPECIAL PARTNERSHIP WITH MIAMI BOOK FAIR)

In this special episode of “The Future of Democracy x Miami Book Fair,” host Sam Gill talks with celebrated poet John Murillo about his newest book, “Kontemporary Amerikan Poetry” (forthcoming from Four Way Books 2020), and the ways it reflects on the legacy of racism against Black and Latino people in America.
