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.
