About Still Beautiful
Written from the heart and experiences of Kevin Bates, Still Beautiful fuses fun, family love, spiritual, emotional and thought-provoking poetry to guide readers through life’s triumphs and defeats. Built into three compelling sections, every reader will find verses that resonate with their past, present and future place in God’s world.
Still Beautiful takes readers on a path of nostalgia; a time where “Black is beautiful” wasn’t just a phrase, it was a way of life. Kevin’s words paint memorable portraits of social injustices, marches, Afros, and grandmas’ cooking. His poems show us how unity is important in getting through tough times, and no matter the issue Black is the color of Beauty.
