Join us for a conversation with Tara Betts on "Refuse to Disappear."

Virtual Event

About the book: “In the spirit of magic, potions, and inventory, this book calls of the language of both science and witchery to call roll on black women. Betts says their names in a litany of circumstances and survival.… the voice carries solemn reality, Molly all that’s been lost and imprisoned with the alchemy of showing up.”-Cindy Arrieu-King, author of "Continuity and Futureless Languages"

About the author: Tara Betts is the author of "Break the Habit" and "Arc & Hue." In addition to working as an editor, a teaching artist, and a mentor for other writers, she has taught at several universities. She is the Inaugural Poet for the People Practitioner Fellow at University of Chicago and founder of the nonprofit Whirlwind Learning Center.
