Haraka Writers Performance

January 21, 2019

1:00 -2:00 pm

The Purdue University Black Cultural Center’s Haraka Writers student performance, in honor of Martin Luther King, will be held in the Art Museum on Monday, January 15 with free admission.
The Haraka Writers is a collective body of students and community writers across the globe that first formed in 1973. Together, they create bold and informed literary work that establishes a strong voice for the modern black experience. The term “haraka” is Swahili for “expression,” and the ensemble exemplifies just that.
