Justice by Langston Hughes

Figured I’d spend this Black History Month (#BHM) with the often creative, poetic, and poignant words of those who’ve come before me, instead of trying to pen something only fractionally as good.

Here’s the poem Justice by Langston Hughes.

That Justice is a blind goddess
Is a thing to which we black are wise:
Her bandage hides two festering sores
That once perhaps were eyes.
