Better Late than not at All

In “Thank You, Ma’am” by Langston Hughes the unforgettable Mrs. Luella Bates Washington Jones leaves a lasting impression on a young boy when teaching him a valuable lesson to take the higher road.

In “Snapping Beans” by Lisa Parker a grandmother comforts her granddaughter by not putting her on the spot and rather just letting her know she understands that for the granddaughter things are certainly changing.

In “It’s the Law: a Rap Poem” by S. Pearl Sharpe the laws reveal about our culture that the laws we make are based off of really how we act and what we do and if we acted in different ways then we wouldn’t have to have them.
