Who is Gary Jackson?
I am a gentleman polite, respectful, considerate and attentive to mankind. I am very direct and I’m the type of man that feels the need to look straight into your eyes when I am talking to you. I am faithful to myself and that includes my word. I live my life with integrity, a man you can rely on to be honest and tell the truth. It’s true that honesty can be offensive sometimes but it’s better to be a man that tells the truth, than one filled with lies. I am a man of maturity, able to care for myself and approach problems in a calm and collective manner. I am self-confident and refuse to change who I am to please or satisfy someone else and I maintain a positive attitude. Which may be difficult to find from time to time since we live in such a negative society.
What is culture to you?
I think poetry in itself is a healing culture. It’s an expression of humanity it’s something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we’re from everyone loves poetry. So we must continue to read, you do not have to burn books to destroy your culture. Just get people to stop reading them. Poetry is a way of coping with the world by defining it in detail words. I am a culture of love and harmony centered around poetic expression.
What do you want to contribute to the culture?
I would like to use my poetry to heal a nation of people with empathy. With descriptive words that express all people are equal in every way. There is no such thing as different race, there was just a human race. I will continue to write poetry that touch black people with love of self. If we could love our blackness as people, as much as we love our black culture. Then and only then can we stand together in our community.
