Yes! reading series, April 1
This series is held at Albany Center Galleries, now on Broadway in Albany, NY & tonight was a showcase for Barzakh, the online literary magazine from UAlbany graduate students. James Belflower, co-coordinator of the series with Matthew Klane, introduced Victorio Reyes, now the Editor-in-Chief, who set the tone by citing the poet June Jordan: “all poetry is political,” & read Langston Hughes' poem “Letter to the Academy.” Perhaps not setting the tone, but sending a message.
