Create a collection of powerful blackout poetry using this curated selection of political documents. What is it? A type of poem? A piece of visual art? For fledgling practitioners, this uncertainty of what blackout poetry actually is can rise up as two seemingly. How do I make blackout poetry if I have never written a poem? How do I make blackout poetry if I have only ever doodled on a Post-it note? If you are confronting those same anxieties, I hope I can empower you with a simple truth: You own this book.
Every document, every page, and every word collected here is an extension of your civic identity. These texts are an opportunity to honor, challenge, and transform the rulings, speeches, and writings that determine your political life every day. If you are questioning how anyone could blackout such serious texts like the Declaration of Independence, the Roe v. Wade ruling, or the Chinese Exclusion Act, I hope I can assure you with another truth: You are owed a conversation with what rules you.
When poet Niina Pollari blacks out citizenship applications to highlight harsh truths of the American immigration process, she is worthy of that conversation. When writer jayy dodd erases parts of the inaugural poem to expose a hypocritical and disconnected president, they are worthy of that conversation. When you pick up a Sharpie, a paintbrush or a pair of craft scissors to reshape these ordinances, addresses, and government records, you are worthy of that conversation.
If you are unsure of what your place is within the hierarchy and mechanisms of this political system, I implore you to go digging through these pages. Every word you black out. Every line you scribble over, every sentence you cover in glitter, every paragraph you slice out with an X-Acto knife brings you closer.
If this book feels small and fragile against the immense weight of lobbyists, politicians, and all manner of current governing bodies, I want you to know that blackout poetry is always a creative act of bravery.
There is nothing fragile about lifting lyricism from the Brown v. Board of Education ruling, which struck down segregation in schools. Whether you share your finished poems with a thousand people on your social media or tuck them away under a mattress to keep for yourself, you have forged an identity—your unique identity—with American texts that, too often, exist outside of the very people they most affect. If you are ready to draw, cut, glue, collage, smudge, scribble, or paint your way through a more personal understanding of the words that define America, then I encourage you to black them out with equal parts empathy and imagination.
Let the honesty of your creative desires and the even deeper honesty of what you feel is right and compassionate inspire you to craft poems brimming with what America should be and overflowing with what America could be. The selection of documents represents centuries of United States history and policy, illustrating moments of both failure and triumph, and speaks to issues of freedom of speech, immigration, civil rights, and other topics that we continue to grapple with today.
