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.

In partnership with Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment’s One Book, One New York.

Co-presented with the Bronx Writers Center and the Bronx Museum of Arts
