Prof. Tobin introduces Poet Laureate Richard Blanco to Clark community
Robert Tobin, the Henry J. Leir Chair in Foreign Languages and Cultures, organized Clark's celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day on Monday, January 20. As part of the day's events, Tobin introduced Poet Laureate Richard Blanco who read aloud the same poem he had written and read at President Obama's inauguration in 2013. Tobin, in his opening remarks, reflected that "Blanco's poetry, as it slips between Spanish and English, invites us to scrutinize how we speak and how we think about such concepts as freedom, civil rights and America."
