Maggie and Harmony continue their new series, Bite-Sized Bits Through the Ages, in which they review smaller pieces of literature over the last century through a feminist lens. In this episode, they talk about the poetry of Helene Johnson, a Harlem Renaissance writer. Maggie and Harmony dissect the poems “Sonnet to a Negro in Harlem” and “A Missionary Brings a Young Native to America” and explore the difference between articulating beautiful thoughts for yourself versus publishing them for others.
