School is back in full swing, along with my own lovely ‘adult school’ (Read: Grad School), so time for writing and blogging has been shrunk, but not gone. I’m still planning on doing NaNoWriMo2017, and I’m looking forward to it. We’ll see how it goes!
Today I have something different for you. In my most recent graduate class, a course on the Foundations of Social Justice Teaching, we had an incredibly interesting opportunity to hear poetry by Michelle Banks – an actress, poet, and native Washingtonian. The poem was entitled “On the Question of Race“, and after hearing, we were asked to write our own. The only ‘requirement’ is that you open with the same stanza and close with the same stanza (substituting white for your own selection).
