You are not a drop in the ocean.
You are the entire ocean in a drop.

You have
galaxies inside your head.
Stop letting people
tell you
you cannot shine.

June Jordan (1936 - 2002) In her manuscript, “Black English: The Politics of Translation,” Jordan wrote, “Politics is power. Language is political.” Writer John Kun attempted to summarize her impact and ambitions when he wrote in BOMB Magazine that “Through a dazzling range of poems, essays, articles, lectures, speeches, and reviews, June Jordan stands at the interstice of beauty and politics. Her work demonstrates a rare and unceasing commitment to the realization of social justice, political equality, and to the unseen possibilities of true human coalitions across race, sex, and class.”
