Join us for a night of poetry: Ekere's work focuses on women, ancestry, connectivity and the healing power of art. She currently teaches literature and composition at York College in New York City. Her first book of poetry, Karma's Footsteps, tackles issues of racism and sexism while celebrating the healing power of voices raised against injustice.
You will have the opportunity to purchase a copy of Karma's Footsteps and have it signed by Mariahadessa Ekere Tallie after the reading!
Ekere's poetry is the subject of the short film, I Leave my Colors Everywhere: http://vimeo.com/26715816
