Ancestors…


Hundreds of years of organized oppression
History
Their voices whisper from the grave to me
Activists
Girl, we were beaten just so you could have this
Truth
I’m glad somebody had proof of the dream
King
That’s what your son, my son, our sons are
You
Have the power to change jeans but not genes
God
Said trust me, I made you Black for a reason so
Reason
With the others who do not yet know
