Jericho Brown

We hope you can join us for an Agitprop reading at the San Diego Museum of Art, THURSDAY, AUGUST 18 at 7 PM, with Jericho Brown.

In conjunction with Agitprop Gallery, the Agitprop Reading Series is collaborating with the San Diego Museum of Art to present Thursday  Summer Salons featuring contemporary artists and writers from Southern California. Museum admission is $12 for adults, $8 for students with college ID, and open to the public. The reading will take place in Gallery 18.

Jericho Brown teaches creative writing as an assistant professor of English at the University of San Diego. His first book of poems, Please (New Issues/Western Michigan University, 2008), explores the intersection of love and violence through an examination of the history and culture that surround African American male identity and sexuality. The recipient of two travel fellowships to the Krakow Poetry Seminar in Poland, Brown has served as poetry editor at Gulf Coast and assistant poetry editor at Callaloo. His poems have appeared in the Iowa Review, jubilat, New England Review, the Oxford American, and several other journals and anthologies. Brown worked as a speechwriter for the mayor of New Orleans before earning his PhD in creative writing and literature from the University of Houston.
