Tuesday, December 15: Salon with James Allen Hall - Poetry as/and Justice

James Allen Hall led a discussion about Kate Daniel's poem, "War Photograph." It's a short and beautiful, but also harrowing. It concerns Nick Ut's famous Pulitzer Prize-winning photograph of a napalm attack on a village in the Vietnam War that was published in the New York Times in 1972.
