February 7
The class will feature a 28-minute interview of Eve L. Ewing by NPR’s Fresh Air host, Terry Gross. Eve tells Terry how she came to write 1919, which won the 2019 best poetry book award from the Black Caucus of the American Library Association. The poems stem from Eve’s study of a report on the 1919 race riot in Chicago—a riot sparked by the stoning and drowning of a Black youth who drifted into the “white side” of a beach. Eve reads several of her poems, and she and Terry discuss the implications for racial justice today. [Full disclosure: Eve is the granddaughter of Marilyn and Elmer Ewing.

Lorraine Maxwell will lead a discussion on observing Lent during a pandemic. Are you giving up chocolate for Lent? Are you taking on something for Lent? Is the observance of Lent done privately, in community with others? Does it matter?  We will explore the observance of Lent and how it might be different in a pandemic.
