The Black & LatinX Poetry Project is a poetic
anthology with 20 emerging poets from diverse
backgrounds. To this day, the publishing industry
continues to underrepresent diverse writers and,
as a result, deny readers the power and beauty of
necessary voices. It is our hope that through an
inclusive collection like this, we can amplify
relevant cultural narratives and shine a light on
the rich humanity contained within our stories.
There are those that would have us believe the
Black & LatinX poets are extinct or on their way to
becoming irrelevant. Nothing is further from the
truth. We are very much alive and we are everywhere.
