Josephine Johnson is the former head of the University of Miami's Department of Communication and a former faculty member of its School of Communication. While at the University of Miami, Johnson organized a series of poetry events for the university's Richter Library, among them a 1982 "performance of Concrete and Sound Poetry" featuring Bob Cobbing and P.C. Fencott. The event took place in conjunction with an exhibition of the artists' work from the Sackner Archive of Concrete and Visual Poetry. Performing Concrete Poetry, filmed in a studio around this same time, features a collaborative performance by Cobbing and Fencott, including an interview with Judy Merriman.
