Meghan Markle & Prince Harry "Get Lit" to honour Black History Month

Meghan and Harry got involved in Black History Month celebrations dropping in by zoom to surprise participants in a Get Lit poetry class and thrilling the people there.Kind Thoughts for Meghan Markle

The Get Lit organization was founded in the US in 2006 after Diane Lane created a one-woman show about the power of books and toured colleges, high schools, jails, and detention centers, taking New Mexican born poet Jimmy Santiago Baca with her. After the show closed she says that she couldn’t bear the thought of cutting off the work completely, so she started teaching classic and spoken word poetry in high school. When the semester ended the students wouldn’t leave, they insisted on meeting after school. Today, the Get Lit curriculum has expanded to over 100 schools throughout California, and is sold to schools all over the world.

Meghan and Harry are said to have really engaged in the zoom poetry class with Meghan said to have shared some of her favorite poetry lines. The participants, in their social media posts, praised the couple for being kind and for genuinely knowing how to connect with people, adding it was the most surreal yet epic experience!
