As written by Hiram Larew, PoetryXHunger Initiative founder:
"Take 5 minutes to watch ANY portion of this recording, and I guarantee:
You'll be convinced that Poetry DOES, CAN and MUST Speak Back to Hunger."
This 60-minute program consists of powerful offerings by poets from around the world and by two leading anti-hunger experts.
As hunger rates rise in the US and around the world, poets are bringing their talents to bear to fight back. As the recording demonstrates, poetry reaches hearts and minds like nothing else can.
Thanks to all who made the event possible -- Aaron R, Diane Wilbon Parks, the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, Sistah Joy Alford, the Capital Area Food Bank, Rebecca Roach, Henry Crawford, Minerva Delgado, Ger Duffy, Josephine LoRe, Roger Thurow, Maryland State Arts Council, Brian Donnell James, Jordan Culmer, Imani West and Patience Gumbo -- to name a few.
