On Tuesday, March 24, 2020, from 11 AM to 1 PM Philadelphia time, Al Filreis is going to host a 2-hour discussion, in a special thread inside the ModPo discussion forum—where we’ll all talk about a poem by Gwendolyn Brooks called “The Chicago Picasso.”
The text of the poem is here: https://media.sas.upenn.edu/afilreis/ModPoPLUS/Brooks-Gwen_The-Chicago-Picasso.png
We made a ModPoPLUS video about this poem and you can watch it here: https://www.coursera.org/learn/modpo/resources/A4IOi
Brooks had something interesting to say about this poem and you can read that here: https://media.sas.upenn.edu/afilreis/ModPoPLUS/Brooks-on-her-Picasso-poem.pdf
You do *not* need to watch the video or read her statement in order to participate in this “live” 2-hour discussion on March 24 at 11 AM (Philadelphia time). You only have to read the poem!
