An Evening with Palestinian Poet Remi Kanazi

Celebrating his new book: "Before the Next Bomb Drops: Rising Up From Brooklyn to Palestine"

Featuring Special Guest: Spoken Word Artist Sojari Bradley
MC: Sharif Zakout

Remi Kanazi's poetry presents an unflinching look at the lives of Palestinians under occupation and as refugees scattered across the globe. He captures the Palestinian people's refusal to be erased, gives voice to the ongoing struggle for liberation, and explores the meaning of international solidarity. His new book also examines racism in America, police brutality, US militarism at home & wars abroad, and Islamophobia.

"Kanazi's haunting poems are not written to be consumed. They reserve a place in one's conscience, in one's memory, and-hopefully-in one's praxis."
-Omar Barghouti, co-founder of the Boycott/Divestment/Sanctions movement

"Each verse made me sink deeper into my chair and helped unleash a cascade of relieving tears: in anger, in mourning, and in hope."
-Noura Erakat, George Mason University
