150 Years of Teaching, Research & Service at UK

 

The University of Kentucky continues to celebrate its 150-year history with a special video featuring the poetry of Frank X Walker.   

The UK English professor and poet, noted for coining the term Affrilachia and co-founder of the Affrilachian Poets, wrote “Seedtime in the Commonwealth” and presented it during the Founder’s Day Convocation in February.

The former Kentucky poet laureate is presenting this poem once again, but this time in the form of a special video produced by UK’s Office of Public Relations and Marketing.  Thousands viewed the video during UK’s Commencement ceremonies Saturday, May 9.
