Abdul Ali Q&A on a current poetry project

I am currently working on a collection of poems that centers my life in education and what those challenges were like. What I have learned is that history is never dead. When I was in high school, I was told that the administration would “never” allow the theater director to stage an August Wilson play. And this was in the early 2000s. Education is one of the last frontiers where we desperately need to see change.
