I always PLAN to do to a Black History Spotlight each day in February, but I am already off to a late start. So expect them intermittently. Sadly they don’t get nearly the page views that RHOA posts do. I think that is a shame. We need more women doing great things and less women brawling on TV for dollars.
I wanted to start with a 23 year old brilliant poet, Amanda Gorman. I am a huge Maya Angelou fan and mourned her loss a great deal. But, when Amanda Gorman spoke at Joe Biden’s inauguration it felt like a modern reincarnation. I fell in love with her immediately and have been following her as time allows ever sense. She is hope for the future. Her poetry, especially when she recites it fills my soul with hope and my eyes with tears.
The poem below was posted by her at on the last day of 2021 to give us all hope for the future. I hope you enjoy it. Let us all have hope that we can come together in this country.
