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.
