A Statement from Carl:
"I created this piece as a series on "Women OF History" to honor those women who first blazed a trail in their writings for Women's history month. I selected Luzviminda Gabato Rivera to read my poem as she is also an accomplished woman in her career and her writings. We have previously worked together as she selected two of my photos to grace the covers of her poetry books."
