Led by award-winning author and performance artist Joy Jones, participants will also come to understand and appreciate the power of poetry to heal, inspire and provide an opportunity for celebration of self, family and community. “Joy Jones is a trainer, performance poet, playwright and author of several books including Private Lessons: A Book of Meditations for Teachers; Tambourine Moon, which was selected as one of the best books for children by the black caucus of the ALA and featured on the Bernie Mac Show; and Fearless Public Speaking.

Leave me alone Ring I met a Woman. A really beautiful Woman Smart great conversation I was polite Keeping social distancing At times just nodding Looking at her speaking hands I focused on her ring finger She noticed my glance and my reticence at pursuing this interaction She announced Oh this This thing This is my leave me alone ring. For those Guys I don’t want to encourage Don’t want to be Involved with Don’t want them do***ng me. I felt great knowing that the leave me alone ring wasn’t for didn’t apply to me. So fellas I’m asking have you ever seen or been the victim of a Leave me alone ring Ha I think I’ll get one my self! Afrofuturism Symbology Afropop jmcrooms 11.29.2020
