Happy National Poetry Month! This month-long celebration of poetry brings awareness to the beauty and power of language. As we celebrate, let's not forget to highlight the contributions of poets, among people of color, to the literary world.
From Langston Hughes and Maya Angelou to Joy Harjo and Sherman Alexie, the works of these poets have been instrumental in bringing marginalized perspectives to the forefront. Through their writing, they have shared their experiences and struggles, giving voice to the voiceless and challenging societal norms.
Whether you're a seasoned poet or a newbie, there are endless ways to celebrate this month. Read a collection of poems by your favorite poet, attend a virtual poetry reading, or try your hand at writing your own verse. Share your favorite poems and poets on social media and spread the joy of poetry with others. Let's honor the craft and art of poetry this month and beyond. Happy National Poetry Month!
