February was Black History month celebrated in the United States and Canada.
As a final tribute, I thought I would share a poem from one of my favorite poets: Langston Hughes.
That justice is a blind goddess
Is a thing to which we black are wise:
Her bandage hides two festering sores
That once perhaps were eyes.
Mr. Hughes died in 1967. My guess is that if Mr. Hughes were alive today, he would not be bashful about what he would perceive as the injustice of a legal system in which so many young minority men are incarcerated, often for lack of adequate legal assistance.
