Joy Harjo, 2020 Irene Blair Honeycutt Distinguished Lecturer

In 2019, Joy Harjo was appointed the 23rd United States Poet Laureate, the first Native American to hold the position. Born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Harjo is an internationally known award-winning poet, writer, performer, and saxophone player of the Mvskoke/Creek Nation. Grammy award winning saxophonist Paul Winter says, “Joy Harjo is a poet of music just as she is a poet of words.” She is the author of nine books of poetry and a memoir.

As part of her visit to Sensoria, Harjo will also lead a salon-style master class with Central Piedmont students and community writers at the Charlotte Center for Literary Arts, which co-presents that salon. Harjo's poems, paired with art by Crista Cammarato, will be featured on the April edition of 4X4CLT poetry + art poster series which is displayed in over 100 host venues across Charlotte. 4X4CLT is made possible in part by a grant from the Arts and Science Council.
