Lost Souls Public Memorial Recitation of Names and Poetry Reading

Lost Souls Public Memorial Project 2nd Annual Recitation of Names

East Brunswick, NJ – Wednesday, May 22, 2019 

The Lost Souls Public Memorial Project will be holding a memorable evening of dinner, performance poetry, and a recitation of the names of the Lost Souls on May 22 from 7-9pm, to be held at Baker’s Barn at 93 Church Lane in East Brunswick. Included will be a recitation of the known names of the 177+ African Americans sold into permanent slavery in 1818 by a corrupt Middlesex County judge, as well as performance of her own poetry commissioned for this project by NJ State Theatre Poet-in-Residence, Glenis Redmond.

Tickets are available on EventBrite. Basic admission is $60, which includes dinner, dessert, and the evening’s programming. A limited number of special tickets are available for $100, which provide a signed, limited-edition artful print of a poem penned just for this occasion by Redmond. The goal of this fundraiser is to grow the funds that will eventually pay for the design and erection of the memorial, as well as to continue to grow community involvement in this effort to heal the legacy of slavery and disenfranchisement in our nation.
