Watch GPG member Norman Thomas Marshall’s presentation of “The Virginia Monologues.” These pieces come from a larger work entitled BETWEEN WARS, a testimony of Southern poor whites during the waning days of Jim Crow. It is fiction with enough autobiography to make you wonder why the presenter is not dead or in jail.
On Friday, December 1 at 7:00 PM, Guilford Poets Guild member Norman Thomas Marshall and Dr. Louis A. DeCaro will receive the John Brown Society Silver Medallion for ”outstanding cultural and intellectual contributions to the understanding of the Abolishment Movement and the continuing struggle for equality for the poor and despised.” The Awards will be conferred by Larry Lawrence, president of the John Brown Society. The ceremony will be held in Manhattan, in the Community Room of 125 West 109 Street, between Amsterdam and Columbus Avenues, just west of the C/B subway lines (exit from the rear of the “Uptown” train).
