Poetry Section: Black History Poems

The poems below were chosen by the Write From Wrong editors to acknowledge National African-American History month. The poets below have lead and are also leading the way for many poets today. Their work shows appreciation for not only black culture, but also an universal culture that we all share as Americans.

Very special thank you to Poetry Foundation where most of these poems appear.
