"Dear James Gordy"

Dear James Gordy is Mikhaella Norwood's winning 2019 Motown Mic piece that made her the Spoken Word artist of the year for 2 years running! Artistically putting to words the little known fact that Motown great, Berry Gordy, is cousins with past President of the United States, Jimmy Carter, this poem takes you through the twists and turns of what it means for two racially different families to emerge from one bloodline due to slavery. Written from Berry Gordy, Jr.'s perceived point of view, Norwood pens what she imagines a letter from Berry would be to his great grandfather, slave-owner James Gordy. 

Published by Broadside Lotus Press, the oldest Black publisher of poetry and literary works in Detroit, and with the Detroit skyline overlooking the border of the print, this historic 8.5x11in art is perfect for Detroit and Motown lovers everywhere!
