Black History Month Reflection Poems Submission

To celebrate Black History Month, the Neighborhoods and Families Division put out a call to local artists to submit poems about what black history means to them. We have compiled a few of our submissions that seek to encompass the diverse voices of our Manchester community.

In our time of reflection, we would like to ask the Manchester community to join in with us and express their appreciation through poetry. We would like to encourage you all to write a short poem about what black history means to you. You may want to explore what black history means to you or why we need to celebrate it, but the content of the poem is up to each individual author.

Submissions will be compiled in our Better Manchester e-newsletter, as well as on our social media pages.

Submissions are due by Friday, February 26th at 4 PM. Submissions can be emailed to Jakob Lopez at Submitted poems may be in any format, but we ask that they are no longer than 150 words. In addition, please do not use profanity or explicit language. We want our entire Manchester community, regardless of age, to enjoy your works. We look forward to reading and sharing your work, and we’d like to thank any and all artists who
submit a piece. Please contact Jakob Lopez at with any questions.
