NCHEP Plenary Session | Dwayne Betts | Felon: An American Washi Tale
Dwayne Betts will present an excerpt of the solo show that he is developing based on the poems in his collection Felon. The work addresses the experience of incarceration and the challenges of having a complicated conversation about crime and punishment in contemporary America. This presentation is built of three parts. First, a segment of dramatic performance that combines recitation of verse with storytelling. Second, a discussion framing the show within the contemporary political moment but also the literary context reaching back to the work of Etheridge Knight, Lucille Clifton, and John Edgar Wideman. Finally, there will be a question-and-answer period allowing Dwayne to explore the issues raised with the audience.
