Billie Holiday (April 7, 1915 – July 17, 1959) Know your history, know your culture. Your independence depends on your remembrance. Each one, teach one.

Janice Lowe in Conversation with Justin Desmangles, Sunday 11/06/2016





Joining me in conversation this afternoon in the 5 o'clock hour, poet, composer, Janice Lowe. A co-founder of the Dark Room Collective, Ms. Lowe's most recent collection of poetry is Leaving CLE: poems of nomadic dispersal (Miami University Press, 2016).

She is also the author of the chapbook SWAM (Belladonna Series). Her poems have been published in Callaloo, American Poetry Review, In the Tradition, and The Hat; they have also appeared on a digital album with Drew Gardner’s Poetics Orchestra. Her essays have appeared in Sing the Sun Up and The Cleveland Neighborhood Guidebook.

“In Leaving CLE, Janice Lowe’s debut collection, she imagines poems as scores for socially-charged lyric and performative possibility. These poems explore the psychic and material spaces and traces of Cleveland and other cities through forms that leap off the page. Lowe transforms life’s arcs into song: ‘Sing back to me bright as Sunday’—and she does.”— John Keene

Conversation begins at 02:02:40, the preceding music on play list below.
