Friday's sessions started for me with a panel on Feminism in the 1980s organized by Arielle Greenberg that featured Catherine Wagner and Linda Russo, with whom I would be performing in the poetry event that night. When I saw Linda's stack of index cards I got a bit sad, thinking of the many times I'd been here with Lorenzo Thomas, who always spoke from such a deck of cards. Time passed, and I attended a panel on temporality.
|The afternoon plenary was a panel I organized, "Of Time and Bodies: New Black Aesthetics/New Black Critique," featuring presentations by Mecca Jamillah Sullivan, Meta Jones and Evie Shockley.|
