The Road to rescue | Evie Shockley || Radcliffe Institute

As part of the 2018–2019 Fellows’ Presentation Series at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, Evie Shockley RI ’19 reads selected poems, ending with a work in progress: a long narrative poem that is part epic, part speculative fiction, and part exploration. Shockley is the author of three books of poetry and a critical monograph. Specializing in 20th-century African American literature, contemporary poetry and poetics, and black studies, she is a professor of English at Rutgers University–New Brunswick.
