Morning Meditation for the Awakening Black Child. Pressing Issues.

Morning Meditation for the Awakening Black Child.

(1970). Color lithographed broadside. A graphically sharp presentation of a poem celebrating the rising of a Black Muslim child. A header displaying an image of the Islamic crescent and star heralds the sheet. In the first-person verses, the child calls on themself to embrace their inherent wisdom and strength in order to “let all humanity know That I know/That I am who I am/ And that I am worthy/Enough to be called/In the name of ALLAH.” A powerful, intersectional expression of self-worth and joy. Rare: only one institutional holding recorded in OCLC. Edges show shallow creasing, trace rubbing to graphics, else near fine. Framed. (22 by 14 in.). Item #30316
