Black History Month Poetry Reading

“Mulatta—Not So Tragic?”

In this 10-minute poetry reading, followed by a 20-minute Q&A, Activist Poet Karla Brundage, and Dr. Allison E. Francis, who both teach at Chaminade University of Honolulu, will share renshi poetry that examines the liminal spaces women of color occupy under the provocative and controversial label “mulatta"—traditionally a term used to signify progeny of African and European parents. Through the use of the renshi collaborative format that links poems by repeating the last line of one poem to the first line of a new poem, Brundage and Francis will explore the sometimes devastating and celebratory dynamics of being bi-racial women in the 21st century, through this Spoken Word performance.

Allison E. Francis, PhD: Professor of English, Chaminade University of Honolulu

Karla Brundage, MA, MFA: Adjunct, Chaminade University of Honolulu
