As part of our celebration of black culture, we asked local rapper Chill Moody to craft spoken word poems. In this piece, he makes a plea for extending Black History Month. Check it out in the video above.
His other poem, "Dear Philadelphia", recognizes entertainer Will Smith, musicians The Roots, radio personality Dyana Williams and several other remarkable black Philadelphians. Watch it below.
Make sure to follow Moody on Facebook and on Instagram (@ChillMoody).
His music is available on Spotify and YouTube.
