Writer blends poetry, activism in book

first_imgSaint Mary’s welcomed Ekere Tallie, a poet whose work focuses on the values of an activist, to Carroll Auditorium on Thursday for a reading. She said her book, “Karma’s Footsteps,” is filled with the songs of a black, poor and resilient woman.Tallie said that she lives by writer and civil rights activist Audre Lorde’s quote, “your silence will not protect you.” In one of her poems, Tallie said she wrote, “wounded eyes will tell it, even though we don’t.”Tallie said her poetry revealed her personal experience of being sexually abused. She said she learned as hard as it was for her to reveal herself as a victim, sharing her story helps other people.“Poetry for me is not art for art’s sake; it’s art for our sake,” Tallie said. “I will share my poetry with anybody who is open.”Tallie said she draws inspiration from sources all around her, including race, love and the blues. Her book “Continuum,” which will be published this September, features a series of 12 letters to Tallie’s imaginary friend, Continuum.“I am interested in young writers interested in liberation,” Tallie said. “Continuum is interested in using art for liberation.”Tallie said she “[has] so many poems on love gone wrong.” She read a poem titled “Medusa,” inspired by a former boyfriend who told her that her hair made her look like Medusa as she stepped out of the shower.“As a woman I am unafraid to turn men to stone,” she said, concluding the poem.Tallie revealed an unfinished poem she was in the process of editing called “Lady.”“It’s a piece I am currently working on,” Tallie said. “It’s about a crazy woman, not accepting her crazy, but acknowledging it.”Tallie also read pieces centered on the immigration of entire black communities.“There are two types that I cover,” Tallie said. “One is voluntary migration, like the Great Migration, and the other is forced, where people were literally forced out of the South in the early nineteenth century.”The poetess also spoke about women accepting and loving their bodies, a topic considered in her poem dedicated to the beauty of gap-toothed women. Tallie said she encountered a cab driver in New York who spent their entire drive trying to convince her that her smile was beautiful.Tallie said she began to fully appreciate her culture after reading “The Autobiography of Malcom X” when she was 16 years old.“Now people think Malcolm X and make so many assumptions,” Tallie said. “He made many changes, but in the end he understood the brotherhood of men.”Tallie said her family has a rich history in the South, involving themselves in the rights movement.“I also like hidden stories, getting beneath the surface,” Tallie said. “I have many stories of my own that I just sit in my room and write, but you need to separate wheat from chaff to find out what is meaningful to other people.”Junior Dara Marquez looked up Tallie’s poetry after noticing the fliers around the College’s campus.“I found her spoken word to be empowering and wanted to be a part of her words in person,” Marquez said.Marquez was invited to dinner with Tallie by Student Involvement and Multicultural Services (SIMS).“[Tallie] is really easy going, relatable,” Marquez said. “A lot of the things she says, you relate as a woman. If you’re a creative person curious as to how other people express their values, she’s good at that.”Tags: activism, Civil Rights, Poetry, Saint Mary’s Collegelast_img read more

Syracuse, LSU discuss possible home-and-home series

first_img Published on March 13, 2014 at 4:52 pm Contact Trevor: [email protected] | @TrevorHass Syracuse and Louisiana State are discussing a possible home-and-home football series, SU Athletics Chief Communications Officer Joe Giansante told The Daily Orange on Thursday .“Any report about actually having it done, those are premature,” Giansante said in a phone interview. “But we are having discussions and those discussions are focused on a game in Baton Rouge and a game in Syracuse.”The last time Syracuse and LSU played was in the 1989 Hall of Fame Bowl in Tampa, Fla. The Orange would face its first Southeastern Conference opponent since 2012, when it beat Missouri 31-27.Giansante said the Syracuse home game would be at the Carrier Dome, not at MetLife Stadium. Other details of the potential series with LSU are still in the works.“There’s no deal, and we’re in the discussion phase,” Giansante said.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textCBSSports.com reported that the LSU series would begin in 2015 in Death Valley, however Giansante said that report is inaccurate. Syracuse and LSU are not that far along in the process, he said, therefore there is no way those details could be ironed out at this point in time.Giansante said the main goal of playing a perennial powerhouse like LSU is to continue to build upon the success Syracuse has had in recent seasons. The Syracuse football brand “has momentum” with three bowl wins in four years, he said.“We want to measure ourselves against the best,” Giansante said. “There are games that have tremendous upside if you can find a way to win. You can’t climb the ladder unless you climb your way up.”Another main goal of the LSU series — or a similar-type series — would be to lure fans into the Carrier Dome, Giansante said. He said he wants to continue to build excitement around the program, and believes bringing in a team like LSU would help hook fans.Syracuse currently has a two-for-one scheduled with Central Michigan. The Orange travels to play the Chippewas on Sept. 13, and CMU is slated to come to the Carrier Dome in 2015 and 2017. SU also has a home-and-home scheduled with Maryland where the Terrapins will come to the Dome on Sept. 20, and the Orange will travel to College Park in 2019.SU will play Notre Dame at MetLife in 2014 and 2016. Syracuse will travel to Beaver Stadium to face Penn State in 2020 and host the Nittany Lions in 2021.“I think it’s great interest to our fans,” Giansante said about the potential LSU series. “We want people to start coming to the Dome.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
