Appearing on Blank Canvas this week is Neda Brown, Deputy Chief of Mission for the US Embassy, and three CR Walker High School Students—Chaneaka Bain, Marlecia Johnson and Danevio Neely—who participated in the Poet-in-Residence Workshop with visiting poet Omikongo Dibinga. The students speak about their experience in undergoing the week-long workshop with Mr. Dibinga, who taught them to “write not fight” and deal with their feelings and problems through spoken world poetry. A performance of the students’ poetry will be held this week at the National Art Gallery on Friday May 1st at 6 p.m.

First cousins Dr. Nicolette Bethel (left) and Margot Bethel (right) speak about their collaborative installation at the NAGB, entitled “If.” The work is an evocation of their paternal grandmother’s house on East Bay Street, a traditional wooden home, that was mistakenly bulldozed. Nicolette has written a book of poetry about “Mamma Lilly” and the poems play an important part in the exercise, part reconstruction, part theatrical set. The artists discuss the intersection of memory and storytelling, with some of the issues being addressed in the NE7—race, economy and class—and speak to how the destruction of traditional homes, whether accidental or intentional, is creating a loss in our history and sense of identity.
