Need a car? Like poetry? Here’s the deal. Back in 2000, I published a memoir by Adele Holden, a poet/English teacher who grew up during the segregated 1930s on the Eastern Shore, scene of Maryland’s last lynchings. She went on to graduate from Morgan, earn a degree from what would evolve into the Hopkins Writing Sems, and have a long career at Dunbar and CCB. When the book published, she bought a black Infiniti I-30 cash outright since, she explained, I’d be driving her all over the state to readings and events. I did, and when she passed away she left me the car. I don’t need a car, so I am going to donate the proceeds from selling it to CityLit Project and launch a book/chapbook series in her honor. The mission of the series will be to publish African-American poets, likely young emerging poets, given Adele’s passion for teaching. Serious inquiries only.
