Black Poetry Day🦋

As you man guess, black poetry day is a rad date to celebrate…

Black poetry! :black_heart:


Black Poetry Day is celebrated on October 17 (which is now),
The birthday of Jupiter Hammon, who is the first black poet published in the United States.

The day recognizes not only Hammon but also the contributions of other black poets who are commemorated in elementary and secondary schools, colleges, and libraries across the United States.
