Black Panther Movie Inspires Black Pride
#BlackPanther movie exceeded my expectations this past weekend!
My son took me to see the movie this weekend, like he does with all the Marvel movies, but this time it was truly a special occasion. We had both been waiting eagerly for the release of the movie, and were both pleased with the outcome.
It motivated me to dig out an old poem I wrote years ago called “Why Didn’t Someone Tell Me.” Actually, I dug it out of my memory and have provided it below for you to enjoy. I actually revised a couple of verses (partly because I forget the original order that I wrote the words in). This poem, just like the movie, emphasizes the need for
#blackpride in African American children everywhere.
Why Didn’t Someone Tell Me?
