This anthology is a collection of poetry written by 10th grade students at the High School of Fashion Industries in Manhattan. After studying works by poets such as Audre Lorde, Lucille Clifton, Danez Smith, and Mahogany Browne, these young writers challenged themselves to turn their passion for social justice into poetry. From exploring the personal as political to demanding systemic change, these authors fights wholeheartedly for their beliefs.
