Tracy K. Smith: Love Is a Language

U.S. Poet Laureate Tracy K. Smith has a deep interest in “the kind of silence that yields clarity” and “the way our voices sound when we dip below the decibel level of politics.” Her poetry, particularly in this podcast as she gives voice to black civil war veterans, brings light to the questions about race and social justice still relevant today.

In this OnBeing audio podcast, Krista Tippett spoke with Tracy at the invitation of New York’s B’nai Jeshurun synagogue in November of this year (52 min).
