Pale. Pa. Ale: Speak. Don't Leave - Valencia Clements Reading & Book Signing
The Peabody Office of Student Engagement and Peabody Office of Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion are excited to welcome Peabody Alum, Valencia Clement, to share and read from her powerful, self-published book of poetry Pale. Pa Ale: Speak. Don't Leave.

Pale. Pa Ale is an autobiographical collection of poetry. It features poetry on the following topics: constructing a sacred self, family, education, divine love and acceptance, romantic love, war and eventual heart break, and death. Clement uses a critical lens, rhythmic sounds and rich lived experience to tell a story of liberation, mindfulness, spirituality, peace and reconciliation. Clement says, "Ultimately, my creative journey has been a pursuit of truth, embodiment, representation and immortality. After spending years in school reading what “critical scholars” thought about Blacks, Haitian migrants, Queer folks, Women, Christians and Scholars, I knew that I had to reclaim my truth and share my perspective with the world. I hope my work and story empowers other people to express their collective histories through creative expression. "

There will be book raffles and book signing opportunities!
