This poem is modeled after Jo Brainard's "I Remember" (2001) which is a poetic prose/novel that recounts experiences the narrator encountered throughout their life. My poem, "I Remember Being Black," is poetic prose that serves to organize many of my racialized experiences inside of and expansive of formalized education.
