The Politics of Poetry: The Intersection of Art and Activism

Setup

Clint Smith and Reginald Dwayne Betts work at the crossroads of multiple disciplines. Both men have pursued graduate degrees in the Ivy League: Smith is working toward his PhD at Harvard and Betts recently obtained his JD at Yale. But they also stay true to their creative lives, publishing and performing poetry in which they grapple with issues such as politics, inequality, race, fatherhood, and incarceration. They will talk with Damian Woetzel about the sociopolitical urgencies in their work and how they combine their seemingly disparate worlds into one holistic practice.
