Voices of the Rainbow: Celebrating the Oral Tradition
Since 1993, the English Department of Long Island University's Brooklyn Campus has been hosting a series of poetry and fiction readings entitled "Voices of the Rainbow: Celebrating the Oral Tradition." This series, funded by the Brooklyn Campus Provost's Office and the New York State Council on the Arts, is free and open to the public.
We have presented over 70 programs, bringing to our campus such prominent literary figures as Chang-Rae Lee, Piri Thomas, Judith Ortiz Cofer, Amiri Baraka, Ntozake Shange, Yevgeny Yevtushenko, Cristina Garcia, Gloria Naylor, Gwendolyn Brooks, Fae Myenne Ng, Maryse Conde, Junot Diaz, Tracie Morris, Jessica Hagedorn, Edwidge Danticat, Ishmael Reed, and Dorothy Allison.
Several programs have been presented in collaboration with the Department of Teaching and Learning, the Women's Studies Program, and the English Club. For the past several years, we have also presented programs at the East New York and Ridgewood/Bushwick extensions of the Brooklyn Campus of Long Island University/
