Celebrating Black History Month: Rita Dove

Watch former Poet Laureate Rita Dove read “The Oriental Ballerina,” a poem from Thomas and Beulah, a collection all Deerfield students read in advance of the poet’s appearance here in 2018.



In celebration of Black History Month, the OICL Task Force invites you to share a short video like this one of someone who is important to you. Please send your submission to OICL & Ms. White with a one-or-two sentence introduction to the video and/or the person featured in it, and we’ll include it in a future Bulletin post!

This video was submitted by Mr. Scandling.
