Performance artist Na Tanyá Daviná Stewart delivered her distinctive style of emotionally and intellectually charged spoken word as part of the inaugural Kathryn Morgan Spring Poetry Fest. She closed her performance with "Sister Space." Daviná shared the stage with Eva McKend '11, an English literature major from New York, N.Y., who performed her piece, "Between Love and Hate." Eva was accompanied on piano by Philippe Celestin '11. Both performances helped celebrate the life and work of Kathryn Morgan, Sara Lawrence Lightfoot Professor Emerita of History. Morgan, who attended the festival's kickoff event, was the first African American professor at the College and the first African American woman to be granted tenure.
