Nomadic Press & Chapter 510 Black Joy Poetry Anthology Release

May 3 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Nomadic Press will be releasing an anthology written by Chapter 510 & the Dept. of Make Believe authors taking part in our Black Joy Workshop: a poetry workshop for black young men ages 13-18, lead by poet and teaching artist Daniel B Summerhill. Get your copy and hear readings by Vernon Keeve III (more TBD) and live music by Azuah Melara at 7pm. Emceed by the ever-fabulous Nazelah Jamison. FREE!

Through publications, events, and active community participation, Nomadic Press collectively weaves together platforms for intentionally marginalized voices to take their rightful place within the world of the written and spoken word. Through its limited means, Nomadic Press is simply attempting to help right the centuries’ old violence and silencing that should never have occurred in the first place and builds alliances and community partnerships with others who share a collective vision for a future far better than today.

“This project was made possible with support from California Humanities, a non-profit partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Visit calhum.org.
