On May Day, 1971, the late Jack Powers began his weekly venue of Stone Soup Poetry. On May Day, 2021, the gathering turned fifty in a way no one could have predicted, all-online, working and succeeding to create magic that a small but dedicated following has done for so long. Thanks to Deta Galloway for featuring. Thanks to Toni Bee for doing the behind-the-scenes work to make that happen. Most importantly, thanks to the old and new guard for coming together to honor everything that's come before and promise so much more in the future.
