Distinguished Spoken-Word Poet Pays a Visit to the Bi-Co

On February 7th and 8th, Haverford and Bryn Mawr Colleges were visited by Safia Elhillo, a talented young Sudanese-American poet and spoken-word performer. Safia has been making a name for herself both nationally and internationally with her poetry, and she is currently a Stegner Fellow at Stanford University. She is the author of Girls That Never Die, Nima on the Other Side, and The January Children, and edited the poetry anthology Halal If You Hear Me with Fatimah Asghar. The Bi-Co was lucky enough to have Safia Elhillo teach poetry workshops as well as perform her own work during her stay.
