Lenard D. Moore Students Featured on NC Poet Laureate's Blog
A number of Lenard D. Moore's students were featured this week on North Carolina Poet Laureate, Kathryn Stripling Byer's blog. After reading Richard Wright's novel, Native Son, students were instructed to write kwansaba poems. Kwansaba consist of seven lines, with seven words per line and no more than seven letters per word.
Read more about Lenard, his students, and several wonderful kwansaba on the blog's May 6th post.
Thanks for sharing this exciting news with Tobacco Road readers, Lenard. And thank you for all you do to promote poetry throughout our region and beyond.
