Cnotex “C??T?™ Author, Lyricist, Poet, Writer, Producer, Publisher of Black Pearl Diamonds Publishing (ASCAP)” RS Wilson; is gathering a litany of poets this Saturday to usher in the release of his latest book project.
Wisdom’s Lit- Laughter in Taurus is a poetic chronicle of the life of C??T?™ in the times that we inhabit. We can expect the philosophical style of Cnotex’s writing to carry us through his contemplation on the scope of the self as it relates to the expanse of the universal and the ephemeral nature of the narratives that can seem so daunting and pervasive in our lives.
In an intimate setting, C??T?™ will bring together some of Tulsa’s most notable poets to give their interpretations of wisdom through spoken word performances. Miko The Artist, Phetote Mshairi, Written Quincey, Jerica D. Wortham will be joining Cnotex making this Saturday afternoon one of powerful, deep, thought-provoking, linguistic mastery to stimulate your mind.
Copies of Wisdom’s Lit- Laughter In Taurus can be purchased and signed at the event or in advance.
While the event, held at Central Library from 2-5 p.m. on Saturday the 24th in the Aaronson Auditorium, is free to attend RSVP is required due to limited seating. There will be tapas served by Chef Taylor’s Kitchen and libations available from PadeTea.
Casey McLerran is the Literary Editor at the Black Wall Street Times. She is a Sooner State transplant from Forest Hills, NY. McLerran arrived in Oklahoma at the age of three shortly after gentrification displaced her and her family out of their home in New York. At first glance, many think they have McLerran figured out. To be frank, she’s a biracial American young woman that unapologetically embraces her half-African identity — a feminist-womanist she is. Her pen operates as her voice as well as her sword. Her accolades include the 2018 Rural Oklahoma Poetry Museum’s Oklahoma Poem Award, a business management degree, and her three beautiful children. Her objective with the Black Wall Street Times is to elevate and amplify the literary art of modern black American culture, pay tribute to African-American literary trailblazers, all while simultaneously linking and introducing children to the world of colorful American writers.
