The American Poetry Museum panel

This panel takes place at Library of Congress, in LJ-119 from from 10:00 am-11:00 am.

Haile Gerima's documentary After Winter: Sterling Brown revolves around the life of DC's first poet laureate.  This reading investigates Brown's legacy with poet A. B. Spellman, a former student of Brown's, Howard University professor Tony Medina , and Shakeema Smalls, a young poet at Howard University who is coming to terms with Brown and his influence through the other poets she has studied.


American Poetry Museum is a virtual space for exhibitions and education centered on the subject of American poetry. The Museum also collects objects centered around American poetry and presents events and educational poetry writing workshops for learners of all ages. The Museum also hosts an annual exhibition each year comprised of art, photography and video about different subject matter using poetry as a tool for discussion.
