“The way anger dwells in a man / Who studies the history of his nation”

Posted on by Dodge Poetry

On Tuesday, our President & CEO Tanuja Dehne took to the Dodge Blog to state the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation’s commitment to anti-racism and condemnation of white supremacy. You can read her full remarks here.

In addition, Dodge Poetry is sharing just a few videos from our archive that speak to the impact of centuries of systemic violence against black lives.  

The title of today’s blog post comes from Jericho Brown’s poem “I am a Virus.”

Jericho Brown reads his poem “I Am a Virus” for Dodge Poetry’s “Whose Body?” project, March 2018.
Lucille Clifton reads “What Haunts Him” and “Sorrows” at the 2008 Dodge Poetry Festival.
Rita Dove reads her poems “Canary,” “Teach Us to Number Our Days,” “Cholera,” and “The Spring Cricket” at the 2014 Dodge Poetry Festival.
