Weighing the work of Thylias Moss, Frank Ocean, Robin Coste Lewis, and George Moses Horton, among others, against Thomas Jefferson’s claim in Notes on The State of Virginia that, “among the blacks is misery enough, God knows, but no poetry,” poet and scholar Joshua Bennett explores the politics of black love throughout the African diasporic literary tradition.
