The Etheridge Knight Festival, in conjunction with the IUPUI English Department's Rufus & Louise Reiberg Reading Series, presents a one of a kind literary event on Tuesday, April 19: An Evening with the Legends. Four essential artists from the Black Arts Movement will take the stage: Amiri Baraka, Mari Evans, Haki Madhubuti and Sonia Sanchez, who come together to honor the late great Gwendolyn Brooks with a reading of their respective works.
The night will also include a pre-reading VIP reception, a video of poet Etheridge Knight, expressions in movement and dance, and an art exhibit showcasing the work of Joseph Holiday and his daughter Mijiza Yaa Soyini. Following the performance will be an autograph session with the artists where books will be available for purchase.
