Presented by: UIC Latino Cultural Center
Join the UIC Latino Cultural Center, Disability Resource Center, MeSA, SAFEHR, SJP, and UPRS for our last Noche de Poetas (Poetry Night) of the Fall 2012 semester.
Don’t miss the amazing talented poets from our Greater Chicago community & UIC campus as they share their own poetic words on this month’s theme, “Intersections of Identity.”
- Want to create your own poetic justice by speaking the word on disability?
- Have some poetic words about your experience with disability and intersections of identities?
- Want to push back against the stigmas of disability?
Leading the poetry will be our featured poet Lynn Manning.
Lynn Manning is an award winning poet, playwright, actor, and athlete. Originally a visual artist, Lynn turned to literature after being shot and blinded at age 23. He now paints with words. His work has been featured in a variety of literary magazines and anthologies.
If you require any accommodations please contact us at least three days before the event.
