Here at EngageDiversity, we not only profile historic individuals who have strived for diversity and equality, but also current individuals who are living it in the present.
The arts including acting, music, comedy, and poetry have always been used as a form of self-expression. Poets, in particular, have always had the uncanny ability to make taken-for-granted assumptions in society front and center as they engage the social arrangement of everyday life through spoken word. For the summer months, EngageDiversity will feature poets from across the United States. We are quite fortunate to get their approval to share their work. These individuals are all talented, up and coming, successful poets who are making splashes in front of a multitude of audiences across the nation. All of their poems are conscious, prideful, and enlightening as they question what is acceptable in society. EngageDiversity hopes you enjoy these masterpieces.
This month we finish our feature on poets. We highlight the works of Aunt Alice Daniel and Stevener Gaskin.
Their bios and poems are on the next page. This month is especially personal for me. Aunt Alice is my Great Aunt who recently passed away, while Stevie G is one of my mentees. It is a dynamic passing of the torch from Aunt Alice, who was 90, to Stevie G who is in his early 20s. I think you will be able to see the prolific connection between these two individuals from different generations and agree that poetry continues to be a major linguistic link that binds the masses.
