Video: This Poem Celebrates the Undying Magic of the Black Woman

OkayAfrica connects with Ghanaian-American poet Cynthia Amoah for a powerful spoken word video.

Back in March, we stumbled on Ghanaian-American poet Cynthia Amoah's powerful poem that encouraged black girls to love the skin they're in.

We had to connect with the wordsmith, where she delivered another strong prose that celebrates the undying magic, resilience, and wonder of the black woman.

Listen and watch The Undying below.
