We'll spend the first hour of our Poetry Month special in conversation with U.S. Poet Laureate Joy Harjo, featuring tracks from her powerful new album, I Pray For My Enemies. Plus we'll hear poets- many from the Harlem Renaissance and Black Arts Movements- reading their work, along with poetry set to music, and hip-hop. We'll hear from Nikki Giovanni, Langston Hughes, Maya Angelou, and many more!
