SFJAZZ Poetry Festival


The Festival, with Genny Lim, kicks off with Poet Laureate reading on Thursday; Fri's theme is Peace Matters; Sat's is Black Lives Matter and the Festival closes with "We Insist! Max Roach's Freedom Now Suite."

This is what SF/Arts curator Laura Fraenza had to say about SFJAZZ Poetry Festival :

SFJAZZ hosts this diverse and treasured tribe of poets including local laureates Janice Mirikitani, Ishmael Reed, Alejandro Murguía and Genny Lim, presiding over four nights of performance at the crossroads of confabulation and melody, filled with Latin and African (American) rhythms, Asian, Italian and Arab flavors, all dignifying and describing the shared human experience through poetry.
