Gabrielle Union just praised an amazing young and talented poet. Check out her impressive message.
‘Today’s #WCW I want to celebrate in honour of #NationalPoetryMonth, @ajamonet. She is a poet, writer, lyricist, activist, and a voice we all desperately need. She is the youngest poet to become the Nuyorican Poets Café Grand Slam Champion at the age of 19, and is the last woman to have won this title since,’ Gabrielle began her post.
She continued and said: ‘She is a true artist in every sense and has so much soul, depth and truth to offer. She has also been a leading force through her activism, working with the Say Her Name campaign to highlight police brutality against black women. Please take a moment today to read her words, and let her poetry sink in. Let us lift her up in the light of goodness and hold her there.’
The poet wrote this: ‘I’m crying. Thank you @gabunion One day, I’ll tell you why this post meant so much to me at this very moment on this day of all days. I needed this little sign. Thank you.’
Someone else said: ‘I like you. I wanted to get to know you better. You do not mind?😘🥰’ and a commenter said: ‘1 of my favourite poets. “My mother was a freedom fighter”’
