I am pleased to feature Cherry as my August poet. She is also a motivational speaker, holds a black belt and is a martial arts instructor (Hmm, based on my previous post, Cherry and I have something in common, an interest in karate). This versatile poet focuses on social, political and economic issues, as well as women's rights.
Cherry has published two poetry collections so far, and has also done recordings.
Stay tuned throughout this month for more on this fascinating poet.
