If you were moved by the power of our poets and if you believe that #blacklivesmatter please buy their books, fund their projects, or consider supporting the movement by donating to progressive, nonprofit Black-led organizations such as the Oakland-based Color of Change which seeks to strengthen the political voice of black people by leading campaigns and designing strategies to fight racism and injustice. I also would like to remind everyone to please vote in November. —Aileen Cassinetto, Curator
