Kathryn Morgan Festival: Featured Poet Sunni Patterson
This year's annual Kathryn Morgan Poetry Festival, named in honor of the groundbreaking folklorist and historian who taught at Swarthmore for more than 20 years, featured the multi-talented Sunni Patterson. It has been said that she is more than a poet, more than a singer, and more than an emcee. It's not just what she says, it's how she says it. She is a mother, an artist, and a visionary whose roots remain in New Orleans. Patterson combines the heritage and traditions of her native town with an enlightened modern world view to create musical poetry that is timeless in subject matter and groove.
