Jonathan C. Creasy (editor of BLACK MOUNTAIN POEMS/New Directions, 2019) explores two remarkable artistic and educational experiments of the 20th century: Black Mountain College and the Cambridge-based Poets’ Theatre. Distinct as they were, both reveal continuing concerns in art, poetry, performance & politics. The event culminates in the screening of several films by Mary Manning (intro by Fanny Howe).
