Poetry in Activism – podcast

‘Charing Cross Bridge, London’ van Claude Monet (1901)

 

It’s National Poetry Month! Listen in on Nonviolence Radio as we explore ways to bridge the gap between poetry and activism. Our guest, Amy Elizabeth Robinson, is a Sonoma County mother, poet and activist who recently wrote a love poem to Kellyanne Conway.  Together with hosts Stephanie Van Hook and Michael Nagler, they discuss poetry, the current administration, and the need for nurturing activism. Amy reads some beautiful poetry, including “Yesterday We Were Asked to Write from a Place of #Revolutionarylove, so I Tried to Write a Love Poem to Kellyanne.” Also, intermixed with the show is nonviolence news from around the world.
