Poet Mahogany Browne to Give Westminster Reading April 29

Poet, writer, curator and organizer Mahogany Browne will give a reading at Westminster April 29 as part of the school’s Friday Nights at Westminster series of readings and concerts held during the academic year. The student readers will be Fourth Former Carolyn Cheng and Fifth Former Tomasina Pearman.
Browne is the executive director of JustMedia, a media literacy initiative designed to support the groundwork of criminal justice leaders and community members.
She is the author of recent works: “Chlorine Sky,” “Woke: A Young Poets Call to Justice,” “Woke Baby” and “Black Girl Magic.” She is also the founder of the diverse literature initiative Woke Baby Book Fair and is excited about her latest poetry collection. “I Remember Death by Its Proximity to What I Love” is a book-length poem responding to the impact of mass incarceration on women and children. Based in Brooklyn, she has served as the first-ever poet-in-residence at the Lincoln Center. ​
Browne’s reading will take place from 7-8 p.m. in the school’s Werner Centennial Center. It is free and open to vaccinated members of the public with advance registration by emailing with the number of people attending. Reservations may be made until the day before the event, and space may be limited.
Ample parking will be available in the parking lot adjacent to Armour Academic Center.
The Michael Cervas Visiting Writers Program, which includes the Friday Nights at Westminster series, is supported by generous gifts from the Ford-Goldfarb English Department Enrichment Fund, the McKinley Fund, the Connell Fund and the Friday Nights at Westminster Fund.
