"A Summer Deferred"
I stepped into the path of a sunset in June hoping that the hottest lips in the heavens would always be present to kiss me goodnight. But summer has seemingly hidden her warmth for the past two months; leaving my face estranged to her love. Absconding to regions outside of New York City to make a mockery of our desolate beaches. I pray that her solar winds unite us in August to bronze my brown skin and fill my mouth with grievances on the days where she flirts with the heights of the thermometer. I dream for summer to be as wild and free as I know her to be. #poemsbyjk

There’s nothing wrong with grief.

There’s nothing wrong with fear.

There’s nothing wrong with pain.

Just don’t allow them to keep you in bondage, unable to grasp the happiness that is rightfully yours.

What if Superman grew up as a black boy in America?

While staring in the face of racism, this story follows a young man’s journey as he comes to terms with his identity. As we extract events from America’s history and weave them with fictional undertones, we examine the truth behind his mother’s legacy, his father’s affiliation with the movement and the makings of a black superhero.

This montage sets the climate for an upcoming Sunday Kinfolk story.

Featuring Isaac Hayes, Walk On By

Written by D.Verrtah
Marcus Smith (Behind the Lens)
