Tell Me Your Names: The Poetry of Lucille Clifton

Sun, 14 Jun 2009 12:00 AM - Sat, 21 Jun 2014 12:00 AM

This seminar engages participants in an intensive course of study led by senior scholars who are authorities on African American poetry in general and Lucille Clifton’s poetry in particular. The seminar has three broad goals: 1) to enhance the participants’ ability to teach African American poetry, specifically poems by Lucille Clifton; 2) to assist them in preparing lesson plans on Clifton’s poetry; and 3) to reanimate the dialogue both within and beyond the academy concerning the importance of teaching and writing about poetry.
