Randall speaks and reads from the anthology she edited and translated, Only the Road/Solo el Camino: Eight Decades of Cuban Poetry (Duke University Press, 2016). The reading is followed by a conversation with the audience. 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.
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.
