Joy Harjo to Visit UNC!

Nov 1, 2022 @ 2:30 pm - 5:00 pm

We are pleased to announce Joy Harjo, 3-term U.S. Poet Laureate, as our speaker for the Michael D. Green Lecture this year. Harjo is an international renowned poet, author, and performer. In 2019, Joy Harjo was appointed the 23rd United States Poet Laureate, the first Native American to hold the position and only the second person to serve three terms in the role.

The UNC American Indian Center sponsors an annual lecture in early November in honor of Dr. Michael D. Green, professor emeritus of American Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Dr. Green was a distinguished historian of American Indians, and a founder of the American Indian Studies program in the American Studies Department on campus. This lecture series recognizes his life and achievements by inviting a leading scholar in the field of American Indian Studies to give a public lecture. We are honored to have Joy Harjo be a part of our American Indian Heritage Month celebration. She will deliver a reading with commentary on Tuesday, November 1, 2022 at the Carolina Union Auditorium. We look forward to you joining us!
