Dupont Circle - graphic poem : These  six photos contain a poem called "dupont circle" which can be read in order (if you like) by viewing these photos from left to right in the first row and then left to right in the second row. Oddly enough each photo and text also stands on its own as a separate work. These along with photos from another gallery were on display at the Columbia-Tusculum Starbucks during August 2005.

Let America Be America Again : Inaugural Protest

At 9 o’clock in the morning, on January 20, 2005, at the moment the oath of office is being administered in Washington, D.C., Artists and Writers for Peace will bring people together in BART Plaza in Downtown Berkeley, California to read the Langston Hughes poem “Let America Be America Again.”  And then to read it again. Anyone in attendance who wants to join in will have a chance to come to the microphone--until everyone has read or the light has dimmed.

Our call to people all over the country to join in the reading has been
well received. As of the 17th of January, 14 cities are making the
poem part of their protest.  We like the idea of the words...”Land that never has been yet and yet must be...” drowning out the pontification and lies that will emanate from our nation’s capitol that day.  And we like the idea of everyone speaking the verses of protest at the very moment--12 noon EST-- of the inauguration ceremony
While “Let America Be America Again” was first published in 1936,  it speaks to us today with a voice both critical and hopeful.
