The Poetry Center and the Museum of the African Diaspora co-present artist Asya Abdrahman and writers Faith Adiele and Tonya M. Foster, each presenting their work then responding to questions from the audience. The program, titled "Navigating Space for Women," took place at MoAD, San Francisco, within the context of the exhibition "Where Is Here" (curated by Jacqueline Francis and Kathy Zarur) and in celebration of International Women's Day, and was co-sponsored by MoAD and the Poetry Center. During March 2017, all Poetry Center programs were dedicated to the theme "Because We Come from Everything: Poetry and Migration," shared with 30+ organizations across the US engaged in the Poetry Coalition.
