Join us for a reading with Cave Canem Poetry Prize-winner Julian Randall who will be reading from his collection Refuse. This program will also featuring a reading by Sherrika Mitchell of the Pittsburgh Poetry Collective. Julian explores the relationship between himself and his father amidst their shared history of grief and inherited Black trauma. Julian invokes mythical figures such as Icarus, Narcissus and the absent Frank Ocean to create contemporary allegories about what it means to be black, biracial, and queer today.
