For 25 years, The Furious Flower Poetry Center has served as the first and foremost academic center for the study of Black and African-American poetry. Residing within a small house on JMU’s campus, it has extended its reach internationally to serve creative writers, literary and cultural scholars, and poetry lovers everywhere.

Every ten years, the Center coordinates a celebration that brings hundreds of the most successful and promising poets throughout the world together to share their work. This course includes watching some of these readings and live discussions with some of the featured poets. Join us as we celebrate National Poetry Month and the contributions of the Furious Flower Poetry Center to our literary landscape.
