Reminder: Domestic Violence Wears Many Tags Presents “Brokenness to Boldness”

Join QueenAfi as she interviews Ashley Strange a native of Washington, DC where she attended public schools. Ashley was forced at a young age to grow up due to the lack of emotional support from school. There were times she felt alone, she felt that no one wanted to help.

Ashley was placed in special education classes with students who had mental and behavioral problems. She learned very little in these classes and stopped going little by little. After the death of her mother she gave up on school completely and became a product of the DC foster care system.

Now, she is an upcoming college senior at Trinity Washington University. How did she do it?

A Black Face Among Them

A Black Face Among Them

It’s sad that, in this new day and age with the President of The United States Identifying as Black, racism still exist.

Well guess what? There’s a new Black Face Among Them.

She’s as resilient as can be when treated redundantly.

A crowd of White suits smirk and stare at how ruby like this Black suit is,

how elegantly fitted and robust she is,

and how she doesn’t just bring home the bacon, but the entire market.

This face, this Black face, the one who makes every man, White, Black, Blue, or Yellow, heart’s race,

is the one who puts stragglers in their place.

There’s a Black Face Among Them, and that face indeed is me.

Author Notes: I really wrote this poem because when 
I walked out of the subway station, dressed to impress, 
I received looks of disapproval from my White counterparts.
