THE FIRST 100 TPC MA EVENT!
We Still Leave a Legacy- A poetry reading by Philip Robinson
Thursday, March 29th, 7pm at Medicine Wheel Productions
Free and Open to the Public
Medicine Wheel Productions is proud to present on Thursday, March 29th at 7pm “We Still Leave a Legacy”, a reading by the acclaimed and award winning poet Philip Robinson. A short reception and book signing with follow the reading.
Philip will read from his recently released second book of poems, We Still Leave a Legacy. This chapbook is a combination of verses written and dedicated in part to the many friends and family members that have transitioned either by way of HIV/AIDS, cancer and other life-troubling issues. Philip attempts to capture his own sense of hope, determination and remembrance. He wants people to not only hear his voice, but desperately never to forget those voices of people that make this “Legacy” possible.
He began to write “Legacy” some twenty-five years ago as he commenced his volunteer work @ AIDS Action Committee. At that time, Philip became the chair of AAC Bayard Rustin Breakfast Committee. He also experienced the loss of friends through HIV/AIDS. Philip became diligent to praise the work of others who had gone on before him/us. He was determined to live by the mantra; “We stand on their shoulders.”
