Many Black writers in Wisconsin have what Ali Muldrow calls “an unrequited love story” with their house state.
Right now, Ali spends the hour with Dasha Kelly, the primary Black girl to be named Wisconsin Poet Laureate, to have fun the private and political energy of poetry and listen to some stay readings of Dasha’s work.
Dasha Kelly is a author, artist, performer, social entrepreneur, and the poet laureate of Milwaukee and Wisconsin. She is the founding father of Nonetheless Waters Collective, an arts training and community-building initiative.
