Habari Gani? (or What’s the News?) 

Kuumba (Creativity) – to do always as much as we can, in the way we can, in order to leave our community more beautiful and beneficial than we inherited it.

For those of you who supported us by attending INTERSECTIONS, participated in a writing and dialogue workshop, or gave in response to our fundraising campaign, we thank you for your support!

Your attendance, donations, and volunteer time have helped us to embrace the Kwanzaa principle of Kuumba every day throughout 2010!

If you haven’t yet made your year-end contribution to the American Poetry Museum… it’s not too late.

You still have time to make your 2010 tax-deductible gift to the
American Poetry Museum!

We urge you to do so now via our secure online donation system. Please Click Here or visit our website at to make your online contribution and have it count for 2010.

Remember, philanthropy will make the difference at the American Poetry Museum to help maintain our reputation as one of the first museums dedicated to collecting, interpreting, and presenting American poetry in the Washington, DC area.

Happy New Year!

Jon West-Bey

Executive Director

P.S. A sincere thank you to all who have made a contribution in 2010 and/or supported us in other ways. We appreciate you!
