Sexual Harassment is NOT TOLERATED at Nassau Community College

According to Federal guidelines, sexual harassment is sexual attention that is serious, offensive, unwanted, and persistent. 

from The Nassau Community College Sexual Harassment Policy: 

Sexual harassment of students or employees is considered unacceptable and will not be tolerated.  This includes workplace and peer to peer harassment.  Sexual harassment subverts the mission of the College and undermines the educational process, creating an atmosphere that is not conducive to learning or productivity.

"Black Beauty" by Natasha M. Nurse

I wanted to share my poem "Black Beauty" that was published in Songs of Seasoned Women.

Black beauty so undefined and misunderstood
Associated with the unknown lost culture of African tales
Depicted as crack heads and whores.

Stereotyped to have a big butt, ebony skin, and bad weave
But I will tell you what makes me a true beauty.
I could care less what the fool next to you said
I will tell what black beauty is...
It is the stride of a tall chocolate woman,
