POETIC RESPONSE TO IN PURSUIT OF FREEDOM NOW!

Words @ Weeksville

 

The oral history tradition of griots and storytellers has been legendary in black communities. Passing down myth, lore, wisdom and creativity between generations.  

 

Poetry is

Our birthright

Our bloodline

Our Mothers Milk

Our Manifesto

 

Young black Poets around Brooklyn have come to Weeksville to create poetic response to the visual art shown as part of In Pursuit of Freedom Now!

 

Their words are a light unto our feet and a lamp for our pathway Forward!

 

Poetry by Dannie Ruth + Keenan Jhones
