Poetry is Activism

SVCREATES: Most of what I know is this: writers and poets, my people, bring me the news.

It is in poetry that I find primary sources, voices on the ground, and firsthand accounts of critical turning points in history.

This country still needs to address multiple emergencies: a global pandemic and public health crisis, white supremacy, anti-black racism, and police brutality becoming police murder–all in a hellacious election year. Among other societal issues. This country is failing to acknowledge all of it. Cultural work is necessary, and poetry brings us the news, analysis, memories, and space to say what’s stirring us.
