This event is a tribute to the poet, teacher, and activist, Akilah Oliver, who passed away recently. In celebration of her work and life, this panel consists of her colleagues, one of her earliest publishers and advocates, and a recent student. Oliver authored several books, and her influence as a mentor was widespread and inspiring. One of her last projects was a book-length theory on lamentation. This panel was organized byBelladonna Collaborative, the feminist publisher of which she was a member.
