Seton Hill to Host Kuntu Writers Workshop Poets
Greensburg, PA – Seton Hill University is proud to host the Kuntu Writers Workshop Poets as part of the University’s celebration of Black History Month. The Kuntu Writers Workshop Poets, a group that includes members and friends of the Kuntu Writers Workshop, will perform on February 19 at 7 p.m. in Cecilian Hall on Seton Hill’s campus. The performance, hailed as an "expression of the development and authentication of the African American experience through poetry and drumming," is free and open to the public.
The Kuntu Writers Workshop, a program of the Africana Studies Department at the University of Pittsburgh, exists to bring writers together in a meaningful discussion and to assist writers in getting published or produced. The Workshop’s roots reach back to a group of Pittsburgh street performers that included prized playwrights August Wilson & Robert Penny (the Workshop’s founder). Chawley P. Williams, a compatriot of Wilson’s & Penny’s, and Frances Lee Wilson, the Director of the Kuntu Writers Workshop, will be featured at the February 19 performance.
