From the Poems we read today For Brothers Everywhere is my favorite. I enjoyed how the author mixed in slang to add to the tone of the poem. I also like ,in this poem, how it doesn't really have a deep meaning that is hard to understand its simply entertaining. One thin that stood out to me is how the author related basketball to jazz, and i liked this because its a unique and creative comparison.
By definition the word "soul" is the spiritual or immaterial part of a human being or animal, regarded as immortal. "Soul" is said to originally mean "coming from the sea" because the sea was thought to be the origin , as well as, the dwelling place of ones soul in ancient northern Europe.In the 1940's and 1950's soul began to be used to refer to the emotional and spiritual quality of African American life which was spread via music. Soul was considered a characteristic of various types of jazz, blues, and gospel music. In modern day soul is thought to refer to the moral or emotional aspect someone has.
It is a popular opinion in older generations that modern pop music lacks the soul it had in the past.
