Ekere's work focuses on women, ancestry, connectivity and the healing power of art. She currently teaches at York College in New York City. Her first book of poetry, Karma's Footsteps, tackles issues of racism and sexism while celebrating the healing power of voices raised against injustice. Attendees will have the opportunity to purchase Ekere Tallie's book and have it signed following the reading. This event is sponsored by Women's and Gender Studies, Department of Languages and Literatures and the Center for Multicultural Education. Funded in part by the University Senate.
