Poetry Pairing in the New York Times – ‘Or’

I must admit that I’m enjoying the recently discovered Poetry Pairing series in the New York Times. You never know what a poem is going to be paired with. Sometimes it’s a picture, sometimes a song, sometimes an event from history…it’s always a surprise and always thought provoking.

With attitudes to race very much on the agenda in the UK these days, this pairing – Thomas Sayers Ellis’s Or with a 2011 video and article from the “Race Remixed” series in the New York Times – seems very timely.
