What better way to celebrate the Heat Strings 10th blogoversary than with a return to the College Language Association? CLA gathered in Houston this year, the weather was fine and the papers were jumping.
Good to see so many friends of long standing and to make new ones. The panel I was on brought me together with fellow poet giovanni singleton and my anthology co-editor Lauri Ramey to discuss the legacies of innovation in African American verse from 1948 to now.
