Amidst the unrest that started late May Poets.org started not just a daily poem from Black writers, but re-promoting older works from their history.
It may look minor to promote poetry, but giving a voice, a space to speak is essential. And history shows poetry has been used to be that voice for as long as humans have needed to speak.
These are some of my favorite poems from the month. They are powerful, sweet, painful, personal and so beautiful.
If you like this, I recommend supporting these poets, not just now, but always. I also recommend connecting to Poets.org either on social media or their poem-a-day mailing list.
