Marty Offline

Belizean Legends is honored to feature these collection of poems from the voices of Belize City's black youth, that reaffirms the fact that not much has changed in the lives today of Belize's black youth population who continue to be marginalized, disenfranchised and killed at incredible proportions today.

This small token of appreciation for this work in poetry form, echoing the cries of Belize City's Southside black youth, and the young brave high school poets who wrote them, is a reminder for all Belizeans at home and abroad; that Belize's black people are a people in crisis.

The work was produced by the Belize Islamic Educator, of the Muslim Community of Belize, Sister Zakina Muhammad, for the Communication Skills Programme of Belize's Ministry of Education, Youth & Sports in April of 2002.


The cover of the book of poetry called, Upliftment: Poems by Young Belizeans, compiled by the Muslim Educator, Sister Zakina Muhammad for the Ministry of Education in Belize.


The awesome poem, Sound of the Ghetto, by Belizean poet, Tanisha King.


The dynamic poem, Belize In Crisis, by the Belizean youth poet, Claudia Thompson.


The outstanding poem, Life On The Streets, by the Belizean youth poet, Khandice Joseph.


The touching poem, Eyes Wide Shut, by Belize's youth poet She'ra Castillo.


The incredible poem on Aids in Belize by Belizean youth poet, Kenworth Broaster.
