Mangels Endowed Lecture with Obama Inauguration poet, Elizabeth Alexander

Join the UW Graduate School for the Mary Ann and John D. Mangels Endowed Lecture with Yale University scholar and poet Elizabeth Alexander, on Hearing America Singing: Multi-Vocal Cultures in America.

Alexander, chair of African American Studies at Yale University and the fourth inauguration poet, will address the prospect of a new conversation about race and culture as it applies to the arts.
