"I Feel Therefore I can Be Free": Harnessing the power of emotion in writing to heal
Duke Senior and Spoken Verb President Allayne Thomas will facilitate a conversation between Zimbabwean American poet and Duke Professor of English Tsitsi Jaji and African-American Duke English Ph.D. Candidate Nicole Higgins. The night will focus on themes ranging from diaspora, womanhood, and intimacy to the meaning of healing. We will also celebrate the upcoming US release of The History of Intimacy by Gabeba Baderoon and Tsitsi Jaji’s recent collection Mother Tongues.

The authors and students will read from and reflect on this work.

Copies of the books will be offered to lucky participants who register early. These have been provided by Rofhiwa Book Café in Durham with the support of our sponsors.

Hosted by the International Comparative Studies Program and Spoken Verb | Sponsored by Duke Africa Initiative and the Concilium on Southern Africa.
