Library & Resources

Check out the virtual events from the Pass It On Festival as a program of Lift Every Voice.  SUNO Library produced the program along with our primary project partner, Pass It On Open Mic. Other partners include the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, Library of America, and the City of New Orleans Mayor’s Office. The event presented conversations on how vital the African American poetic tradition is to the New Orleans community, spoken word by New Orleans poets such as iCon the Poet and Tank from Tank and the Bangaz, and a performance from Jelly and the Pinettes, an all-female brass band.

Recordings of the April 20th event are below.
