Cave Canem Poets

  • Alphabet City 40 West North Avenue Pittsburgh, PA, 15212 United States (map)

Tom once again provides the pre-reading music for the leading contemporary African American poets! This event sells out quickly so make your reservation early!

Founded by Toi Derricotte and Cornelius Eady in 1996 to remedy the under-representation and isolation of African American poets in the literary landscape, Cave Canem Foundation is a home for the many voices of African American poetry and is committed to cultivating the artistic and professional growth of African American poets.

Enjoy an evening of poetry with acclaimed poets and 2017 Cave Canem faculty members Major Jackson, Robin Coste Lewis and Dr. Haki Madhubuti!

Jackson is the author of four collections, most recently, Roll Deep; Lewis is the author of Voyage of the Sable Venus, winner of the 2015 National Book Award in poetry; Madhubuti is the author of more than 25 books of poetry and prose, most recently, the memoir YellowBlack.
