York, Isaac Murphy & Medgar Evers: Historical Poetry As Teacher

Frank X Walker proposes an alternative way to learn about history: through poetry. At this lecture, he’ll use his four poetry collections to discuss how memory, research and imagination are core aspects to the process. Plus, he’ll read new poems from his forthcoming book about York, the Black man enslaved by William Clark who was a key member of Lewis and Clark’s western expedition.
