Poet Moody Black Recounts the Horror of the Cotton Fields
Presentation is everything.
You can talk about the pains of black slavery, but if you really want to move your audience and make them listen, you talk about that pain like poet Moody Black talks about it.
This poet skillfully encases the horrors of slavery, of being separated from lover, family and friend, of being whipped to the point of bleeding and watching your own blood mar the white of the cotton,in the same way that the blood spewing from many a black skin has spouted onto many a white hand; the very hand that inflicted the wound.
Moody Black breaks it all down in his presentation.
We couldn’t help but hang on his every word.
Take in the piece entitled “In The Field” below.
