Poetry

Lisa Barry

A special "comic-con" type event is being planned in Ypsilanti called "Hero Nation-Ypsilanti."

Organizer Jermaine Dickerson says it's an event designed to give a voice to those who might not feel heard.  It celebrates superheroes and diversity with the mission that everyone has a hero inside of themselves that deserves to be celebrated.

Dickerson joined 89.1 WEMU'S Lisa Barry for a conversation about the free, family-friendly event taking place on September 9th at the Parkridge Community Center from 1-6 p.m.


Join host Maya Angelou on 89.1 WEMU Friday, February 8, at 9am. Angelou poetically and historically covers milestones by African Americans in Nobel Peace Prize, Grammy, Academy Awards, and cultural awards.
