On January 20, 2020 at 10:00am, the O.B. Hardison Poetry Series, co-sponsored with Georgetown University's Lannan Center for Poetics and Social Practice, celebrated the spirit of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This free reading combined poetry with historical speeches from Dr. King, Gandhi, Frederick Douglass, Mary McLeod Bethune, and others. This year's program "Injustice is Here" focused on incarceration and featured poet and scholar DaMaris Hill reading from her collection A Bound Woman is a Dangerous Thing. Donations of dry and boxed food items were requested for the Food Pantry of The Lutheran Church of the Reformation.
