“Poetry for the People” Brings Poet Lisa Marie Rollins to Urbana’s Neighborhood Connections

On November 2, 2010, the Public i held a workshop as part of its “Poetry for the People” series at Neighborhood Connections Center, Inc., Urbana’s new community center serving African American youth. The host for the workshop was Lisa Marie Rollins, Oakland-based poet, playwright, and performer. This was the first cultural program at the Center since its opening in January 2010. The “Poetry for the People” project is funded by a grant from Urbana’s Public Arts Commission.


I am really pleased to hear about this program! The City of Urbana is very lucky to have this center.
