The Poetry Center presents Margaret Randall and Sergio Mondragon reading their work. George Hitchcock reads the English translation of Mondragon's poems after Mondragon has finished reading the original Spanish.
This panel was convened by SFSU faculty in response to two events that took place in San Francisco in 1966: a police action that closed down the initial production of Michael McClure's play The Beard, and the police seizure of Lenore Kandel's The Love Book from City Lights Bookstore. The intent of the event, as stated by SFSU professor Leonard Wolf, was to provoke the police into arresting professors for reading censored works in defiance of the City's police censorship squad. About 300 people were in attendance.
