Poetry can reflect our feelings and thoughts with just a few words. It's an important genre of writing that can illustrate a person or a community's perspective of the world.
Research a poet:
Investigate the background of the poet and the perspective their
background or ethnicity lends to
their poetry. What background do they have? What kind of education?
Did discrimination play a part of their past and how did it influence
their poetry? Choose a poet from one of our textbooks. One of your sources
MUST include one of the anthologies. Follow this

other encyclopedia as a source.
