It's been almost a year since our poet-in-residence, Kwame Alexander, created a community poem about the hope of being Black and safe in America. He wrote it after the death of Ahmaud Arbery, the 25-year-old Black man who was shot and killed by two white men while he was out for a jog in Glynn County, Ga. Kwame titled it "Running For Your Life." Here's an excerpt of the reading that he and I did of that poem back then.
