The Feminine Pronoun Series #23: These Are the Times That Try Women’s Souls

In this week's vlog I watched the democratic convention and spent time with the Hurston Hughes Scholars. HHS is a self organized group of black parents and teachers who read black literature and invite guests like me and fellow poet Cheeraz Gormon to share our work with them. Coincidentally, I was in the presence of the Mothers of the Movement in Ferguson and then I watched them speak at the Democratic 2016 convention. I was both moved and frustrated by their appearance. #StrikeForBlackLives
