"The nature of black joy.

Its texture. Its sparks

under any conditions.

Tongues inject

new meaning in old lexicons.

Words become delicious

full of running commentaries.

Delivery stone cold.

Black joy."


Read Center student Michèle Alexandre's recently published essay "Black Joy: Crossing Time and Space" at The Atticus Review.

Congratulations, Michèle!
