BLACK HISTORY, BLACK HISTORY
SOME SAY IT’S STILL A MYSTERY
HMMM. BLACK HISTORY BEING A MYSTERY
WELL NOT TO ME
BLACK HISTORY WILL NEVER BE A MYSTERY
TO MY MEMORIES IN THE PAST CENTURIES
FOR 400 YEARS
GOING THRIUGH BLOOD, SWEAT, AND TEARS
BEING SHACKULED IN CHAINS
PUT THROUGH SO MANY PAINS
FROM SEPERATION OF FAMILIES
TO BRUTALLY INSANE TORTURE
AND FOR WHAT
JUST TO SEE WHERE WE ARE AT TODAY
SAGGING PANTS, MORE GUN WARS
PROSTITUTION, BLACK WOMEN BEING #1
TO HAVE AIDS AND HIV
AND BLACK MEN BEING LOCKED UP THE MOST AND CAN’T EVEN TAKE CARE OF THE RESPONSIBILITES AT HOME
CAUSE IN OUR PAST WHEN OUR ANCESTORS WERE HERE
THEY KNEW THE MEANING OF PRIDE
MEANING OF PURPOSE
MEANING OF PRINCIPLE
MEANING OF EQUALITY
MEANING OF FREEDOM
THEY FOUGHT THE WHIPS
THEY FOUGHT THE HOSES
THEY FOUGHT THE CHAINS
THEY FOUGHT BEING LYNCHED
FOUGHT BEING HUNG
FOUGHT BEING BEATEN BY COPS
FOUGHT BEING BURNED
FOUGHT BEING AMPUTATED
OHHH. SO MAY YEARS AGO
CENTURIES OF MY ANCESTRIAL MEMORIES
THAT WERE FACED SO MANYYEARS AGO
SO BLACK HISTORY BEING A MYSTERY
IS MAD DISRESPECT IN MY EYES
BEACAUSE IT TOOK A NATION
A NATION OF BLACKS TO HELP YOU REALIZE
THE FACT THAT WE CAN OVERCOME
NO MATTER WHERE WE’VE COME FROM
WE’VE OVERCIME DISCRIMINATION AND SEGREGATION
MARE WELL KNOWN THAN ANY NATION
IT TOOK ALMOST 400 YEARS EXACT
TO FINALLY GET TO WHERE WE’RE AT
FINALLY INTEGRATING SCHOOLS AND JOBS
TAKING IN ALL THE CRUELTY THIS WORLD HAD TO OFFER
MAKING SOMETHING OUT OF NOTHING
FROM THE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENTS
TO THE FREEDOM RIDERS
TO DR. MATAIN LUTHER KING JR.
TO MAGGIE LENA WALKER
TO AUTHER ASHE
TO HARIET TUBMAN
TO THURGOOD MARSHALL
TO SOJOURNER TRUTHE
TO ROSA PARKS
TO MALCOM X OUR MUSLIM BROTHER
AND TO EVERYONE ELSE
CAUSE THERE ARE SO MANY MORE
ALL PIECES OF A GREAT QUILT
THE QUILT OF BLACK HISTORY
ALL PIECES OF BLACK HISTORY
NOW I SAY WE AREN’T DONE YET
THERE’S A NEW PIECE OF TAPASTRY
TO ADD TO THE MASTERY
MASTERY QUILT OF BLCK HISTORY
SO TAKE A PIECE OF THIS NEW BLACK HISTORY
THAT NOW AND FOREVER SHOULDN’T BE A MYSTERY
THE BIG “B.O.”
JUST IN CASE YOU DIDN’T KNOW
BARAC OBAMA
THE PRESIDENTIAL PROBLEM SOLVER
IT’S TIME FOR CHANGE AND HOPE
FOR CHANGE HAS COME
IN THE YEAR 09
WHEN OUR ECONOMY ISN’T DOING FINE
HERE’S SOMETHING TO BRIGHTEN THE DAY
MY PRESIDENT IS BLACK
I’M PROUD TO BE ALIVE TO WITNESS THAT
TO ALL THE VOTERS THAT SUPPORTED THAT; SO YEH
IT’S A NEW DAY AND AGE
DAY OF THAT NEW BLACK HISTORY
THAT NOW AND FOREVER SHOULDN’T BE A MYSTERY
TO YOUR AND MY MEMORIES
A PIECE OF THIS NEW BLACK HISTORY
THAT’S GIVEN US A REMINDER OF HOPE
THAT OUT OF MANY; WE ARE ONE
IN THE LAND OF THE FREE
WE ARE DESTUNED TO BE WHATEVER WE WANT TO BE
SO THIS IS A NEW PIECE OF BLACK HISTORY
TO ADD TO MY ANCESTRIAL MEMERIES




THESE ARE MY WORDS




NEVER LOST NORE FORGOTTEN
