It’s been eye-opening to read a lot about African-American history this past year. I kept learning about folks who escaped the racist regions they were brought up in, and navigated their way north, to more enlightened parts of America . Born in Joplin, Missouri, one legendary poet/activist would participate in this great migration. He would find his voice as a member of the Harlem Renaissance.
