Be Real Black For Me

Be real Black for me.

Wear your 'fros, braids, headwraps, & dashikis.

Show your African aesthetic for beauty not the European one that you've been indoctrinated with.

Stand tall. Stop slouching for the load is lighter when we carry it together.

Smile at your melanated sister and brother for we are from neighboring tribes.

Tell the babies that they are Kings and Queens and make sure they truly know and believe it.

Show 'em who we are

They tried to break us but

Centuries later ...

We still laugh, cry, pray, learn, and grow

Centuries later ...

We still fight and refuse to conform

Centuries later ...

We still have not been broken

Centuries later ...

The African spirits of our ancestors live in us

Centuries later ...

We are here and though we may be hurt

Our

Souls

Will

Never

Be

Completely

Broken

So

Go 'head and ...

Be real Black for Me
