The black.

A story yet to be complete.

Many have opinions, but no facts.

The story of the black.

Torn from the homeland and chained for life.

Beaten for years with a life of hate.

Hoping for hope, searching for respect.

The story of the black, is it finished yet?

Given a dime and told to make it work.

Given a life that you don’t know how to work.

Given a mouth you can barely feed.

Because of the hate that is so hard to believe.

With each law and each amendment.

The story of the black grows longer and harder.

We hope for hope and search for respect.

But all we get is what may be left.

How do we tell this story of the black.

This story of magnificent beings, who are treated as if they are not worth seeing.

The words we sing, the music we bring.

Allow us to tell the story of the black.

Because black is coming back.

As the hearts and souls of those before.

The story of the black will forever be true.

And to whom it may concern,

Through the struggle and suffering

The story will forever depict.

The story of the black,

A color that will forever be rich.
