From Middlesex Community College
Creative writing students at Middlesex Community College are taking the stage Thursday, with a nod to the Harlem Renaissance.
In an event sponsored by the college’s President’s Committee on Diversity, students will perform original poetry in the style of such pioneers as Langston Hughes and Countee Cullen. The event is free and open to the public.
Middlesex faculty will also contribute in various forms, including a reprised role by Professor Donna Hylton: a dramatic reading from Zora Neale Hurston’s 1937 novel, Their Eyes Were Watching God.
“This is an opportunity to see our small Middlesex community at its very best,” said Professor Terence McNulty, who organized the event. “For our students, it’s a great opportunity to support their peers.”
The event takes place Thursday at 12:30 p.m. in the Student Lounge of Founders Hall, located on Middlesex’s Middletown campus. More information can be found at the Middlesex Community College website: www.mxcc.commnet.edu.
