My Black Is Poetic Campaign
February 1 - February 28
Throughout the month of February
To celebrate Black History Month, we are requesting any original poetry performances dedicated to Black history icons and their accomplishments.
If you don’t have a poem which fits that criteria, feel free to record a video of you reading a poem of one of your favorite Black poets in history. Please preface cover poems in the following way:
“My name is __________ and I am performing (name of poem) by (name of poet).
Your submission will then be posted to the @sofriedpoetry IG and Facebook pages along with the hashtag #MyBlackIsPoetic.
The initiative lasts all month, so we look forward to your submission.
