In addition to Poetry Corner Wednesdays, for the month of February in honor of Black History Month, I will be sharing poetry from black poets through history and current history. Please feel free to share any of your favorites in the comments section.
American History by Michael S. Harper
Those four black girls blown up
in that Alabama church
remind me of five hundred
middle passage blacks,
in a net, under water
in Charleston harbor
so redcoats wouldn’t find them.
Can’t find what you can’t see
