Black Life: Will Alexander
Programmed by Chika Okoye and David Brazil
Prolific and visionary author and musician Will Alexander will join us from Los Angeles to share his lexically ecstatic work. A poet, novelist, visual artist, philosopher, essayist, and pianist, Alexander is not easily categorized. Though his work is frequently described as "surreal" and he has published mainly with small presses and imprints, Alexander does not fit any clichéd image of the generation of avant-garde poets that began publishing in the 1970s and 1980s.
