Dr. Joanne Gabbin wedded her love of poetry and her commitment to social justice when she created the Furious Flower Poetry Center. Ever mindful of the children and courageous adults who stepped up into the Civil Rights movement, her work through the Center is at once a witness and an ongoing creative response to the continued dysfunctions of racial prejudice. The diverse voices championed by the Center offers reason, intellect and beauty as healing resources in this tense and dangerous world.
