National Poetry Month: Educator Barnes Reads – Progress

On August 25, 2016, Words Dance Publishing published my poem “Progress.” It was a poem I wrote to express my frustration with our current political climate.  Just because life is better for minorities in America when compared to previous generations, it does not mean people should use that progress as a way to dismiss the killings and mistreatment of minorities in our society today.

Check out the video to hear the poem and my additional thoughts.
