Everytime I Talk About...

Everytime I Talk About...

Drawing on the poetry of the late poet Lucille Clifton, UNL Poets will celebrate the long history of Black poets bringing often uneasy truths to the heart of America.

Conceived, curated and directed by Kwame Dawes, the poets, in conversation with music and visual art, will perform their own compositions and selections of poems by Lucille Clifton whose words continue to resonate in our culture today.

This is a free virtual event, but registration is required in order to receive the link to watch. There is also the option to add a donation to support the Lied Center. The live webcast will also be available on the Lied Center Facebook page.

This presentation is made possible in part with generous support from the Lied Center’s MOSAIC Circle: Priscilla C. Grew, Dr. Colleen Jones, Cheyenne & Hector Santiago, Rhonda Seacrest and Art & Chris Zygielbaum.

There are many other ways to connect your device to your TV, but it can vary depending on the device and TV you are using.

Here are some tips we’ve found helpful to get things connected for most patrons:

You can stream the performances on your computer, laptop, phone, tablet – any device with an internet connection!

Watch on your TV by connecting it to your MAC or PC with an HDMI cable or other streaming device.

• HDMI from Mac, PC, tablet or smartphone to TV – many desktop and laptop MACs and PCs have an HDMI port that you can connect to your TV directly for audio and video. If your device doesn’t have an HDMI port, you can buy the appropriate adaptor that connects an HDMI cable to the TV. 

• AppleTV – “Airplay” from iOS devices or “Mirror” from your MAC browser.

• ChromeCast – “Cast” from the Google Chrome browser on your PC or MAC, or from your iPad or iPhone.

• SmartTVs – If you have a Roku device, we recommending downloading the Lied Center’s Roku app (information above). Otherwise, you can find information on mirroring to your TV at these links – FireOS – RokuTV – AndroidTV

We recommend testing these options well in advance of the event you’d like to watch so that you ready when the event begins! 

Enjoy the show!
