Black Strength 

Pongo is proud to spotlight the poetry of Kieanna Stephens, our Spring Intern. Kieanna authored “Black Strength” in honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, describing the piece as a “dive into the mental strain that many black people face in America.”

We encourage you to check out Kieanna’s moving and powerful recitation of “Black Strength” here.

A special thank you to Kieanna for allowing us to republish her piece.
