Gordon Davis

Third Thursday Poetry Night Featuring Gordon Davis

Writer Gordon Davis will read from his work at the Social Justice Center, 33 Central Ave., Albany on Thursday, July 20, 2023 at 7:30PM, with an open mic for community poets.

In May 2020, Gordon Davis was released from prison after 24 years and began the healing journey of releasing his own pain. His broad shoulders have held the pain of life and that of others — it has been a part of his calling. Gordon is also a Bard College Public Health Fellow. And, he has skills in Public Speaking, Program Evaluation, Program writing, Logic, and Critical Reasoning. Yet, to truly overcome any adversity a community is needed.

A reading by a local or regional poet/writer has been held since July 2006 each Third Thursday at the Social Justice Center.  The event includes an open mic for audience members to read. Sign-up starts at 7:00PM, with the reading beginning at 7:30.  The host of the readings is Albany poet and photographer Dan Wilcox.  The suggested donation is $5.00, which helps support this and other poetry programs of the Poetry Motel Foundation, and the work of the Social Justice Center.  For more information about this event contact Dan Wilcox, 518-482-0262; e-mail: dwlcx46@gmail.com

The Social Justice Center, founded in 1981, is a non-profit organization working for progressive social change through education, community building and collective action.  The center advances the struggles against racism and for peace and justice.  For further information about the SJC call 518-434-4037.
