Fall Visiting Poet: Tony Medina

In October, Marymount Literature & Languages welcomed Tony Medina–poet and Howard University professor–to campus as our Fall Visiting Poet. We were very excited to welcome him to a virtual event open to everyone. Medina talked about poetry as a means of empowerment and a tool to combat racism. His reading and the Q&A with MU students is hosted on our YouTube channel for the next three months only!

Recently interviewed forĀ the brown bookshelf, Medina has written and edited seventeen books, including books for young readers. He is an advisory editor for Hip Hop Speaks to Children, edited by Nikki Giovanni. Read more about his work online!
