Poetry in Protest with Najya Williams

Saturday, May 15, 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Founded at the beginning of the COVID_19 pandemic, the School of Arts and Social Justice at Make Shift Boston is a series of free online classes by local community leaders who’s work spans the intersections between community organizing and artistic disciplines.

This Class: Poetry is a powerful tool that appeals to the hearts and minds of the world. Join me in exploring how we can use this gift to raise our voices for equity and justice for ourselves and the communities that hold us. “Poetry in Protest” is a 60-minute workshop that will allow participants to read, watch and write poetry that pushes against the boundaries and systems that serve as the foundation for injustice.

Her debut poetry chapbook, “Cotton,” and spoken word album, “mad black woman,” are available via her website: NajyaWilliams.com.
