Film | The Gospel According to Glenn North

Atkins Auditorium

Celebrating National Poetry Month, the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art presents director Harold Smith’s documentary, The Gospel According to Glenn North.

Smith’s film explores nationally recognized, 18th & Vine Poet Laureate Glenn North’s unique blend of jazz, blues, religion, black history, and social commentary. In his words, Glenn strives to “write and perform poetry that possesses timeless aesthetic value while demonstrating how the written and spoken word can change lives and uplift communities.” A Q&A with Smith and North follows the screening.
