Peace Voices is a spoken word outreach program of Greenville's Peace Center that uses poetry as a vehicle to tell unique, personal stories. Participants engage in master classes with Peace Center Poet-in-Residence Glenis Redmond, both at the Peace Center and in the community.

On April 26, 2018, Peace Voices will present a Poetic Conversation at the Peace Center, For Poetry's Sake: Celebrating National Poetry Month. Guest poets will include Cheryl Boyce Taylor and Charleston's Marcus Amaker. Joining Dr. Edgar to talk about Peace Voices and the upcoming Conversation are Glenis Redmond; Charleston Poet Laureate, Marcus Amaker; and Peace Center Vice President of Community Impact, Larisa Gelman.
