Award-winning poet SONIA SANCHEZ writes what she calls a "call to arms" for the African-American community. A founder of the Black Arts Movement of the 1960s and '70s, Sanchez continues to blend poetry and politics, moving smoothly from jazz- and blues-influenced pieces to politically driven works. Sanchez visits Emory University Tues., OCT. 16, for a reading and will take part in a conversation with BAM artist Edward Spriggs on the Black Arts Movement's origins and legacy Wed., Oct. 17. Deemed the artistic sister of the black nationalist and black power movements of the time, the Black Arts Movement inspired an upsurge in poetry, drama, art and music created within and for the African-American community.
