Jo-Annah Richards is proud to debut her first collection of poetry, and her second publication on Amazon.
With a passion for the Creative Arts, two-time published author, Jo-Annah, recently released an enchanting and eclectic collection of truly captivating poetry.
The topics explored range from love to politics; with each poem effortlessly and vividly embodying the beauty and chaos in each situation.
Beautiful Blackness, one of the stand out poems in the collection, conveys a positive message about the beauty and power of being black. It evokes the importance of self-love, pride and self-acceptance. One stanza powerfully reads:
“Too afraid to be displayed in negative stereotypes of blackness, mute
We need to discover our own power, our essence, our truth
We are the descendants of Kings and Queens, royalty
The blood of warriors and survivors flows through our veins, fluidly”
