Nancy Morejón and Wild Noise

Nancy Morejón fearlessly takes on ethnicity, gender, history, politics, Afro-Cuban identity, and the collision of cultures in the “New World” with her poetry. This reading and meet-the-poet talk with one of the first Cuban women to celebrate blackness in poetry will be set against the backdrop of the Bronx Museum’s Wild Noise/Ruido Salvaje exhibition, a survey of Cuban artists both on the island and abroad grappling with issues of identity, community, and the urban experience.
