They too are the earth The dying distant deaths Women battling centuries Maleficent slavery
A deeply moving lyrical poem about womanhood and survival.
All through the night, my dreams would be dreams of Africa
say “wepa” and a stranger becomes your hermano. say “dale” and a crowd becomes your family reunion.
Just because my tongue rolls in a different way that don't mean I'm dumb... Have you had the pleasure of dancing to the rhythm of the drums?'
'Look on me and be renewed'
Africa's relationship with the rest of the world is marked by silence
Langston Hughes, 1902 - 1967
Like our last names were made of barbed wire, stripping the flesh of those trying to conquer the meanings in their mouths.
