The United States of America: a beautiful country with a history damning and redeeming in turns; a nation where all have opportunity, but one percent of the population controls over a third of the wealth; a crucible of enlightenment democracy that allowed slavery. Poets Sheri Allen, Traci Brimhall, Sarah Carson, Stevie Edwards, Quraysh Ali Lansana, Ugochi Nwaogwugwu, and Kathleen Rooney consider the American dream from its many angles at this Woman Made Gallery poetry reading.
