Readings for December 5: Poetry Selection


Over the past several weeks, more than one of my regular discussion participants has suggested we read poetry together. Intrigued by the idea, I have selected six poems for your consideration for our December reading discussion group at BHC. Some of these are very recent, some not so new. Please find the selections below, in no particular order:

Let America Be America Again by Langston Hughes

Still I Rise by Maya Angelou

from Citizen, VI [On the train the woman standing] by Claudia Rankine

from Citizen: “You are in the dark, in the car...” by Claudia Rankine

Hey Black Child by Useni Eugene Perkins (often misattributed to Countee Cullen)

Yet Do I Marvel by Countee Cullen
