R.I.P. Lucille Clifton
Just found out that Miss Lucille passed today. My heart is heavy. I've met her several times and am just sick about losing such a vibrant spirit.
I tend not to have many regrets in life but I do regret not studying with her. She was supposed to teach at NYU during the time I was there, but she was sick, ironically.
The poem in this video is one of my favorites. It is an anthem for me, and carried me through the last six months.
Rest in peace, Miss. Lucille.
