Horace Mungin, a writer and poet from the period known as the Black Arts Movement (1965-1975), will speak to an audience from 5 to 7 p.m. Feb. 28 at Bo Art, 19 Dunnagan’s Alley on Hilton Head Island.
Mungin is founder of Black Forum Magazine, a national literary publication created during The Black Arts Movement. It is now featured in a permanent exhibition at the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C.
Author of 13 books of fiction, nonfiction and poetry, Mungin fascinates audiences with his literary range and careful research. He will also read from his work, including a new book due out in April.
He calls his works Black Liberation Poetry, and he has been directing his work towards the enlightening of black audiences since the fury of the 1960s.
Books will be available for sale and signing after the reading.
Mungin’s poetry has appeared in many literary anthologies and poetry publications, including the New York Times and Essence Magazine. He has written for the Coastal Times and the Charleston Chronicle.
Mungin and his wife now reside outside of Charleston. For more information about him, visit horacemunginbooks.com.
