Check out our new episode of Poet in the Kennel featuring writer and activist Jess Mally, Young King. Something that is observed within the black community, is the pillar of support Black women are and the protection they’ve provided for Black men. So while this poem is dedicated to the young kings out there, I’d like this to be a piece that champions black women’s power. Strong as warriors and with a gentle mothers touch. Here is Young King by Jess Mally. dir. by Daniel ‘Kwabena-James’ Bailey
