“10 Things I Want to Say to A Black Woman”

Tuesday Dec 14, 2010 – By Liane Membis

University of Pennsylvania Senior Joshua Bennett has something to say all to the black women out there.

He loves you. And so should other black men.

His words come at a critical time for black women, at the end of a year where the media jumped on the “single black woman” syndrome, tensions between black men and women grew, and society questioned the black family. In his poem, “10 Things I Want to Say to Black Women”, Bennett describes a black woman’s worth and the importance of black men in their lives.

Bennett is a well-known spoken word artist. He recently received the United Kingdom Government Marshall Scholarship for graduate studies in the U.K. along with 35 other winners.
