7:00pm Stand our Ground: Poems for Trayvon Martin and Marissa Alexander ($25, FreedomSeed Press)
65 poets from all over the world join together in one voice for justice, freedom and peace. Stand Our Ground is the definitive testament of a revolutionary generation. In this historic collection Black Arts Movement legends Amiri Baraka, Sonia Sanchez, Haki R. Madhubuti and Askia M. Toure are joined by poets of all ages from across the United States and around the world. The cases of Trayvon Martin and Marissa Alexander expose the duplicity of an American justice system that remains rooted in racism and sexism. Stand Our Ground is an effort to raise funds for both families to aid in their pursuit of justice even as it raises the consciousness of a generation toward the pursuit of a movement of justice for all! The book's editor, Ewuare X. Osayande, is a poet, educator and activist.

1:00pm Reading, Book Launch and Holiday Party.
Join us for an afternoon of poetry, refreshments, and camaraderie. Moonstone's new anthology includes 90 of 116 featured poets who read for us in 2014, many of whom will also read on December 14. A listing of poets included in the anthology is on our website (www.moonstoneartscenter.org), which includes some of the best poets reading in Philadelphia today. That makes this a terrific book to give to poetry lovers and to use in poetry classes since readers can go hear the poets as well as read their work. This is a pot luck affair so please bring something good to eat or drink.
