For this tribute, poets Timothy Donnelly, Rigoberto González, Joy Harjo, Tyehimba Jess, Patricia Spears Jones, Yusef Komunyakaa, Timothy Liu, Sapphire, and Susan Wheeler read from Ai’s Collected Poems, and actor Eisa Davis will perform a selection of Ai’s well-known dramatic monologues, giving a sense of the power still resonating through this body of work.
