Kimathi: A Fight, A Poem, by Rodney Rhoine
Rodney Rhoine, nearly 13 years old now, has been writing for us since 2013. He’s written about his favorite subjects and pastimes, the pain a father feels putting his hungry child to bed, and now a poem about Dedan Kimathi (1920-1957), leader of the Mau Mau Uprising, fighting British colonial rule in Kenya. Rodney has always shown exceptional confidence and imagination in his writing. We love encouraging him to further explore his talents!
