The Names We Carry: Poetry Inspired by Radical India
4-5:30 pm Thursday, April 14

Vidhu Aggarwal, Sunu Chandy, Tanuja Jagernauth, Ellen Kombiyil, Shikha Malaviya, and Leeya Mehta read poems reflecting the many names, labels, and categories we use/discard/attach to ourselves and others, throughout our lives. We will share poems exploring issues of exile, imperialism, identity, caste/color discrimination, sexuality, and more. We will encourage audience participation during the reading as well, asking them to fill in words and missing phrases, to help them create and think about the different kinds of dialogues we constantly must create and reinvent in order to highlight different causes.
