The making of film, or the concept of it, has been around since the beginning of the 18th century. The lens of the camera has captured some of the most beautiful things, but also the most prejudice.

Danez Smith is one of these modern fighters in his free verse poem “Dinosaurs in the Hood.” As Smith uses his words to create a poetic trailer for this stereotype-free movie, he tells the story of a young African American boy. Rather than being focused on his color, he focuses on his heroic actions when fighting wandering dinosaurs.

Mr. Beebe recognized him at once. Neither the Ages of Faith nor the Age of Doubt had touched him; he was Phaethon in Tuscany driving a cab." Phaeton was the sun of Helios. Helios hesitantly permitted Phateon drive the chariot of the sun. Since Phaeton didn 't have the skill needed to drive the chariot, he lost control and caught the plains of Africa to fire and turned into a desert so he was struck down by Zeus. E. M.
