Writers on Writing Radio Show: Interview with Gregory Pardlo

Tune In This Week

Sunday, May 20, 2018, and May 27, 2018

“Writers on Writing” Radio Show

WNYE 91.5 FM

7 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.

Interview with Gregory Pardlo

With Dr. Brenda M. Greene, Executive Director

The Center for Black Literature at Medgar Evers College, CUNY


About the Program

Dr. Brenda Greene and award-winning poet Gregory Pardlo discuss Air Traffic: A Memoir of Ambition and Manhood in America (Knopf, 2018). Greene and Pardlo discuss the themes in the memoir, which include the father/son relationship, the impact of the 1981 air traffic controllers strike and labor movement, gentrification, alcoholism and drug addiction, and private schooling among others. Pardlo has written a memoir in essays that explores what it is like for a young Black man whose parents came of age in the 1960s, to live as both a privileged and socially conscious young man in America. The book is both a narrative of cultural criticism and a lyrically poetic personal memoir.


About the Author

Gregory Pardlo is the author of ​ Digest (Four Way Books), which won the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for Poetry. His other honors include fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts and the New York Foundation for the Arts; his first collection, Totem, was selected by Brenda Hillman for the APR/Honickman Prize in 2007.

David Margolick – The Promise and the Dream: The Untold Story of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy

Please join us at Roosevelt House as we welcome noted journalist David Margolick to discuss his acclaimed book, The Promise and the Dream: The Untold Story of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy, an exploration of the complex and ever-evolving relationship between these two American icons, assassinated only sixty-two days apart in 1968. Margolick will be in conversation with Budd Mishkin, long-time host of “One on 1 with Budd Mishkin,” on NY1.

No issue in America in the 1960s was more vital than civil rights, and no two public figures were more crucial in the drama of race relations in this era than Martin Luther King, Jr., and Robert F. Kennedy. King and Kennedy had a vital, but as Margolick argues, a frequently misunderstood relationship. Both changed the United States forever, and their deaths profoundly altered the country’s trajectory. In The Promise and the Dream, Margolick examines their unique bond and the complicated mix of mutual assistance, impatience, wariness, awkwardness, antagonism, and admiration that existed between the two, documented with original interviews, oral histories, FBI files, and previously untapped contemporaneous accounts.

The New York Times Book Review praised The Promise and the Dream: “To have any hope of making sense of it all, we need a discerning… work that not only identifies the most important events of 1968 but also puts them in historical context…. This is what David Margolick [gives] us … an engaging work of popular history.”
