forgotten stories

“Director of Arts and Humanities Programming Kathy Dowell…and poet Quraysh Ali Lansana orchestrated [an exhibit] called “Forgotten Stories,” part of a partnership between M-AAA and Tulsa, Oklahoma’s Tri-City Collective of which he is a co-founder. As the show’s curator, Lansana commissioned two poems from a poet in each state that M-AAA serves: Arkansas, Kansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Texas, and Missouri. Each First Friday a new poet’s work will begin.”
