Roger Reeves and RonAmber Deloney

On Thursday, May 16, at 7:30 p.m., Whiting Award-winning poet Roger Reeves and performance poet RonAmber Deloney have words with us in a African Diaspora-New Dialogues presentation at South Dallas Cultural Center.

Reeves received an M.F.A. in creative writing and a Ph.D. in English from the University of Texas, Austin. His poems have appeared in Poetry, Ploughshares, American Poetry Review, Boston Review, Tin House, Best American Poetry, and the Indiana Review, among other publications.

Deloney's work is conversations on street corners and words exchanged in the breezeway - a mix of stories and scenes from childhood until now. She has worked with The Last Poets in Europe and along with black German rapper Khabo and Takeshi Beats, she released two spoken word/hip hop albums entitled "Of Brickwalls and Breezeways" and "Lilac and Rapeseed."
