Celebrating and Supporting Black Poetry
Anti-Racism Daily is a fantastic source of Black news, arts, history and joy, as well as a source of anti-racism resources, ways to take action, learn more and donate to great anti-racist, anti-oppressive and abolitionist causes--especially organizations led by Black folks.
This week, the newsletter shared some poetry by James Baldwin, Phillis Wheatley and many other poets, highlighting the history of Black poetry in America and how Black poetry existed here before it was even founded as a nation. There are also some key takeaways and actions, including the link to donate to Youth Speaks and First Exposures. It's a great newsletter to follow, so be sure to subscribe.
What other great resources do you know of where we can take action, learn every day and show up to fight against white supremacy, especially with poetry? Share them in the chat.
