Afaa Weaver reads at APSU

 
Wilbur N. Daniel African American Cultural Center (WNDAACC)

The APSU Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts together with the Wilbur N. Daniels African American Cultural Center brought in the incredibly talented Poet Afaa Michael Weaver to do a reading at Austin Peay State University on Monday.

The reading was originally scheduled for February 1st 2010 to coincide with Black History month, but was snowed out. It was rescheduled it for the month of April, which luckily is National Poetry month.

Around 25 people gathered in room 303 in the Morgan University Center to hear Afaa Weaver read from his myriad of works. We were a mixed bunch, students, faculty, and the general public. The ages of the attendees ranged from young to the white haired crowd. But everyone had something in common, the love of Poetry and the desire to hear it spoken by the author who wrote it.

Hearing an author read their work  be it fiction, or poetry; is always a special occasion. The author paints a scene using his words in much the same way as a painter does with his brush, and the resulting imagery is just as vivid.
