Poet C.D. Wright reads from her book, "One With Others."…
C.D. Wright has published more than a dozen books, including "Rising, Falling, Hovering" (2008); "Like Something Flying Backwards: New and Selected Poems" (2007); and "One Big Self: An Investigation" (2003), a collaboration with photographer Deborah Luster to document Louisiana inmates.
Brown University professor C.D. Wright weaves oral histories, news reports and interviews into her poetry. Her latest volume, "One With Others," looks back at the civil rights era in her native Arkansas.
