BIPOC Voices

Longtime Pongo Pals Poet and Instructor Kiana Davis (Top) and Maven Gardner (bottom) reading at Pongo's 25th Anniversary Event

Though a majority of the authors Pongo has published in our 15 books of youth poetry have been BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color), this portion of our website is dedicated specifically to those voices.

 Are you BIPOC and wanting to share your poetry? Submit your poems . We'd love to read, respond, and share your work with others.

Below are the poems we've collected so far:

Kneading Me to Death


What It Means to Be Yellow

An Action Figure Like Me

Me Because You Were

I Matter
