Chicken Soup for the Soul’s “Breakfast in Northport” Goes High When They Go Low

The latest publication of Chicken Soup for the Soul highlights stories by Black women. “I’m Speaking Now, Black Women Share Their Truth in 101 Stories of Love, Courage and Hope” include 12 poems. One of the poems, “Breakfast in Northport’ written by spoken word poet, Zorina Exie Frey, gives a poised lesson on how to deal with racism. The writer shares her experience dining in a quaint town where the population is mostly white. The poem is preceded with an epigraph of Michelle Obama famous quote, “When they go low, we go high”, which echoes the moral of Frey’s message.

Chicken Soup for the Soul’s title for this publication, “I’m Speaking Now”, is no doubt a nod to Madam Vice President Kamala Harris’ words to former Vice President Mike Pence during the 2020 presidential debate.

Frey explains that her poem reflects an isolated incident with a particular waitress and does not reflect the place of business nor the the town of Northport.
