Poetry in the Political Space:
Voices of Protest, Resistance and Empowerment
Jean Biegun

“Poems are lifesavers when your boat capsizes” wrote Lawrence Ferlinghetti in his book-length poem Americus, Book I. Especially now in this time of global distress across so many issues, poetry is welcome as a powerful art form at protests, rallies, and even inaugurations. However, poets all over the globe have been using their voices to protest, resist, and empower for a long time. Their works continue to expose grim truths, raise our consciousness, and unite us for action. The impact of their messages demonstrates why poetry is needed and sought after in moments of political crisis—when our boats capsize.

To honor National Poetry Month Jean Biegun will share works of poets who have spoken out against oppression and injustice from long ago to now and from far away to here among us. Lakeshore Unitarian Universalist Fellowship generously named her their Poet Laureate from 2013-2019 (she has a beautiful LUUF water bottle to prove it!). She also helped launch poetry in Manitowoc County through public performance programs such as Poetry: Alive & Well & Living in Manitowoc! and regular open mic venues at Kathie’s Stage Door Pub. Though relocated to California, she still participates in the Lakeshore Artists Guild Art As Poetry As Art project  every year
