Black History Month

Good morning ?

Thank you for visiting My News. I’d like to usher in Black History Month by praising poet Gwendolyn Brooks.

Like me, Gwendolyn was both a poet and a teacher. Her poem “We Real Cool” is one of my favorites. Find the poem by purchasing her book, Bean Eaters, or by searching online.

I love the message of the poem. My students found the short poem intriguing. After they read and digested it, they wrote their own WE poems and shared them with their classmate.

Please consider reading “We Real Cool” today. I’d love to hear your opinion of the poem’s message.
