I just received word of this performance taking place at the Frazier Museum in Louisville. It seems a good opportunity, for students of all ages, to learn about these African-American writers.

NO IMAGES by Waring Cuney
She does not know
She thinks her brown body
Has no glory.
If she could dance
Under palm trees
And see her image in the river,
She would know.
But there are no palm trees
On the street,
And dish water gives back no images.
