Black Blessings- Claude McKay

Hello everyone I know it's only Tuesday, but I thought you guys could use an early dose this week. So today we're spotlighting Claude McKay!
Claude McKay was born in Jamaica. He was a large influence in the Harlem Renaissance. His books and poems highlighted life as a Black individual in Jamaica and in white America. His bitterness towards racism wasn't hidden or unjustified. If you would like to know more about Mr. McKay, click here! Below is the reading of his poems "If We Must Die" and "White House"with some extraordinary imagery in the video.
