Barnes Foundation

On Top of the Mountain: Sonia Sanchez and Ja Jahannes with Evie Shockley

In the 1920s, Albert Barnes built an important collection of African art and used it to promote a progressive platform of educational and social reform with the notion that these objects would inspire contemporary black artists and writers. Poets Sonia Sanchez, former Laura Carnell Professor of English and Women’s Studies at Temple University and Philadelphia’s first poet laureate, and Ja Jahannes, author of TruthFeasting and editor of Black Gold: An Anthology of Black Poetry, read from their work and discuss their inspiration in African art. Evie Shockley, associate professor of English at Rutgers University, will moderate.
