    We Do Language Symposium

    We Do Language Symposium


    Through Sept. 21

    “We die. That may be the meaning of life. But we do language. That may be the measure of our lives.” The late author Toni Morrison (pictured) spoke these words while accepting a Nobel Prize in Literature in 1993. Described by O magazine as “a beacon in African American culture,” the writer made her mark with novels such as the Pulitzer Prize-winning 1987 novel Beloved and 1977’s Song of Solomon. Vermont poet Toussaint St. Negritude honors Morrison, who died on August 5 at age 88, with the We Do Language Symposium, a week of poetry, music, workshops and discussions. Participating local voices include St. Negritude, University of Vermont professor Major Jackson, published poet Reuben Jackson and Afro-jazz musical artist KeruBo. at Various locations statewide in Various locations statewide.
