Hats Off! to Glenis Redmond, who took Third Place in the 2019 James Applewhite Poetry Prize for her poem "Racism Squared.” This was Redmond’s second year in a row claiming third place in this competition, which is sponsored by the North Carolina Literary Review. Final judge Allison Adelle Hedge Coke called Redmond's poem "a fast take on cold, hard facts beneath every single misguided presentation. If the audience is curious about the reason Ford rallied to create square dance as PE, this piece brings it home." "Racism Squared" will appear in NCLR Online 2020.
