Please join us on Wednesday, April 17th at 3:30 pm in the J.A. Brown Room of Carmichael Library as graduating senior Ben Jackson reads from his collection of sociology-informed poems: “Concrete Seas.”

“To be vivid is always my goal in writing, so no matter whatever flaws in my memory persist, I write these lines with an honest, human heart. These lines explore my childhood in Uniontown, Alabama, my reflections on the Black experience & our culture, my interactions with Love & Death, and so much more. In these lines I swim against the current.”  — Ben Jackson
