Dannie Lee Baldwin is a poet local to Washington D.C. that was featured in the 2013 Summer Reading issue of Street Sense. Several of his works have been published in our newspaper since. In 2015, Baldwin published his first book of poetry, which is available on Amazon.com.
Of his work Dannie writes “take to heart these poems of few, the good I learned in the ghetto. This book is dedicated to my two sons and to all my grandchildren. Hoping that they will find knowledge, understanding and inner peace with God and themselves. To all those who enjoy reading poetry and finding understanding.”
