Teen Writing Prompt 763


I recently went to the Black Maria Film Festival here in West Orange. A motion poem is a combination of a poem and a short film.

How Do You Raise A Black Child is the film that was selected for the film festival. This poem is about the fear and concerns black parents have for their children. Here is the film I saw at the festival.
