Pamela Sneed is is a New York based poet, performer, writer, and actress. Join us as we discuss "KONG" her latest book of poetry. These poems are histories, written but mainly unwritten, showing how social movements constructed around race, gender, & sexuality impact the individual. It is about family, ancestors and pioneers, healing, hope, and love. KONG shifts effortlessly between the comedic and the critical while never losing sight of the author's aim: to offer a work that is transformative, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual. Primarily inspired by Sneed's two trips to Ghana, West Africa, KONG uses both the film "King Kong" and the journey of an African man kidnapped from his homeland as metaphors. At its heart, KONG is a resilient protest work, and a luminescent and universal call for freedom.
