The Anacostia Library would like to congratulate Zahkura Eastman who was the First Runner Up in the Writing Category of the 2021 Know Your Power Teen Arts Contest! Her piece is titled Even Though They Get It Done She said about the piece:

"My piece is about the ending of a cycle of hate. It is about the pain of being a man and woman growing up where we may live. It's more of a spoken word kind of piece but still is a poem nonetheless." 

Read the piece below!
