Fire This Time is a new series from poet and musician Lynne Procope in partnership with National Sawdust inspired by the intellectual and artistic legacy of James Baldwin.
Conceived as a virtual salon, Procope will sit down with musicians, critics, stick fighters, DJs, academics, curators, poets, and music lovers at the ley lines of organizing, activism, and the legacy of perhaps the most influential writer of the last century, James Baldwin.
For this event, Lynne will be joined by Jessica Care Moore, award-winning poet, curator, founder of Black Women Rock, and all around force of nature, discusses the vital role of spoken word in progressive resistance; and the music and poetry of place.
