Black History Month x Get Lit Minute

February 1, 2022

For this year’s Black History and Future Month, we are spotlighting our podcast Get Lit Minute with a selection of our favorite episodes that feature Black poets.  

From iconic figures such as James Baldwin and Audre Lorde, to contemporary trailblazers Amanda Gorman and Eve. L. Ewing, Get Lit Minute is filled with the words of Black poets who inspire the work we do. In order to celebrate the talent that these poets have to offer, we are providing educators, students, and lovers of poetry with a curated collection of bite-sized podcasts for each school day this month!
