Event Description:

Throughout Black History Month, One Book One Bronx, in collaboration with the Leonard Lief Library at Lehman College, will host a series of eclectic programs and reading groups as part of the yearlong initiative Lift Every Voice: Why African American Poetry Matters. Sponsored by the Library of America and The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, Lift Every Voice seeks to engage participants in a multifaceted exploration of African American poetry. 

Join us on Tuesdays in February for a three-part discussion of Olio by Tyehimba Jess, winner of the 2017 Pulitzer Prize. Part fact, part fiction, the book weaves sonnet, song, and narrative to examine the lives of mostly unrecorded African-American performers directly before and after the Civil War up to World War I.
