Come, brothers all!
Shall we not wend
The blind-way of our prison-world
By sympathy entwined?
Shall we not make
The bleak way for each other’s sake
Less rugged and unkind?
O let each throbbing heart repeat
The faint note of another’s beat
To lift a chanson for the feet
Black History Month
February is Black History Month, a special time to celebrate and reflect on the achievements of African Americans, though we celebrate African American life, art, culture, and history year-round. Browse the list below for poems about the African American experience and find more resources on our Black History Month page.
