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.
