Help us celebrate and honor Juneteenth with a playlist from our archive

Help us honor and celebrate Juneteenth with a playlist created by our Library Specialist Aria Pahari, featuring 14 different black voices from our archive of recorded poetry readings, Voca.  Spanning the last 40 years, the playlist includes poems from Primus St. John, Ross Gay, Nikki Giovanni, Ai, Michael Harper, Toi Derricotte, Lucille Clifton, Tongo Eisen-Martin, Patricia Smith, Rita Dove, Donika Kelly, Fred Moten, Ishmael Reed, and Mahogany Browne.  The pictures below feature the poets during the visits in Tucson from which these selections are chosen.  Enjoy!
