10 Poems by African American Poets on Poemflow

A few weeks ago, I came across this site Poemflow, which presents a poem a day for folks with iPhones. However, ou can go to the site and see how the poem appears on an onscreen version of a device.  You have the choice to view the poem in parts as the words appear onscreen, or you can press "view full text" to look at the full version. 

I have identified 10 poems by African American poets that have appeared on the site.
