1.  Guest:         Rhonda Welsh                                 www.rhondawelsh.com                                        

Interview Time:  5:30 p.m.

Guest summary:  Rhonda Welsh is a poet, performer and educator. She is the author of four poetic projects, and has a wonderful poetry event coming up this month.

Guest bio:

Rhonda’s soulful delivery and thought-provoking topics are always sure to inspire and entertain audiences. A regular on the arts and culture scene, she is equally comfortable in front of small and large audiences.

Born in metro Detroit, she approaches poetry the way musicians approach music. “My poetry is meant to be heard. I always think about the rhythm and the flow of the words. That is as important to me as the message.”

Her biggest influences are Gil Scott Heron, Phoebe Snow, and Langston Hughes. The only poet featured during the Detroit Institute of Arts Re-opening ceremonies, Rhonda’s work fuses poetry and music. Whether it’s life, love, loss, self-realization or faith, few topics are off-limits.

Her work has been heard at the Detroit Institute of Arts, the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History, Campus Martius, the Ford Performing and Community Arts Center, Marygrove College, churches, halls and a number of other venues. She resides in metro Detroit, Michigan.

About the book Red Clay:

During the Great Migration, people came from the south in search of opportunity. These children of red clay often found that the north yielded broken families and mean streets. Their offspring were left to find belonging and a sense of place as best they could. Rhonda Welsh is one of those descendents. Red Clay Legacy is an intimate look at her life. Readers will travel with her through childhood, into the spiritual realm, within the ups and downs of marriage and finally into self-acceptance. These poems chronicle her journey.
