Congratulations to UB sophomore Derick Ebert who has been named as Baltimore's first Youth Poet Laureate. According to today's article in the Baltimore Sun, Ebert will perform his work throughout Baltimore (and hopefully here at UB) in the coming year to promote literacy and to encourage and inspire young poets and writers. His work addresses social issues in the community and the search for identity.
Langsdale looks forward to hearing and promoting more about Derick in the coming year. Way to go, Derick!
