Hanif Abdurraqib Poster, Rescheduled

Hanif Abdurraqib will read from his two most recent books: The Crown Ain't Worth Much (Button Poetry, 2016) and They Can't Kill Us Until They Kill Us (Two Dollar Radio, 2017). The first is a collection of poems that Terrance Hayes says are steeped with a combination of "communal soul, rhythmic soul, and spiritual soul." The second is a collection of essays touching on music, mortality, resilience, and black life in America.
