Black Revolutionary Poets film screenings: RAINBOW BLACK: POET SARAH W. FABIO/IN MOTION: AMIRI BARAKA

Sarah Fabio, Mother of Black Studies, and Amiri Baraka, the most widely published Black writer of his time, have rightfully established themselves as pinnacles of the Black Arts Movement. Unique in their approaches, the documentaries Rainbow Black: Poet Sarah W. Fabio and In Motion: Amiri Baraka take intimate looks at the daily struggles and revelations of these two iconic Black poets working toward "artistic beauty and social justice" in an era of social upheaval.

Cheryl Fabio is scheduled to be present.
