Thoughtful Thursday: Poems About Race in America

Today’s Thoughtful Thursday is a link to a New York Times article in which journalist Nicholas Kristof invites readers to submit poems about race in America. He received more than 300 poems, and the ones he includes in the article are rich and thought provoking.
Worth reading. You will find it here.

We’ll end this quick post as Kristof did his, with the first two lines of a poem submitted by Natalia Immordino, a 10 year old girl from London:

The shade of a person is just the cover to their story,

And there is no reason not to open their book.
