Kevin Young – Emory Poet


One of the nation's greatest poets has recently joined the faculty at Emory University in Atlanta. Born in Nebraska and educated at top Ivy League schools, Kevin Young is a poet who finds meaning in the bittersweet history of Black America and inspiration in the essence of its spoken language.

Young also believes in the musical power of poetry, and in this segment for State of the Arts, he performs his works against a backdrop of evocative images, set to the rhythms of jazz and the blues.
