Video Archive: Louis Jenkins reading in 1976

These clips are from the short film From the Museroom: A Sampler of Minnesota Poets, shot in 1976 during a Poetry Collective benefit at the Firehouse in Minneapolis, Minn. Above: “Violence on Television.” Below: “Dream of Wealth.”

(Readings by Robert Bly and other poets from the same event are in the another post.)

Here’s a 2010 clip of Jenkins from WDSE-TV’s Venture North program.

Made my day, Paul. I love this work.

I remember finding "An Almost Human Gesture" after taking Cal Benson's class up at Central.  What a great read. I'm glad I found it early in my life.
