    3-6-5 dayz of black history was made
    1 lonely month all they gave
    28 short dayz to revisit our due
    what da hell, is dat justice too
    for the ancestors before me and you

    Our history of movement is all year
    greatness journey beyond da fear
    of leaders, teachers & people so dear
    history month yet i sheer a tear
    white wash and supremacy don't care


    For da color of africans in amerikka's land
    under da laws of da white man klan
    yet we more together to understand
    the societies holding hated plan
    against our children women and man !


    365 dayz we continue to grow
    message pass in da wings of a crow
    by handz and mindz dat mentally flow
    setting da stage free'd from it's cage
    but one month got me in a rage
    on a historical mental blaze

    Too many to name as i praise them da same
    wit high love and with my deepest grain
    see it's our history of our liberity of free
    Rosa sat....Martin walked....Obama ran
    that our people will fly high as Malcolm spoke

    We hub from great musicians & singers
    to song writers stage writers and actors
    of many wit legacy and legends
    never forgotten sport figures of color
    from every page lay black history in da profolio

    Artist and activist, educators and scientists
    political empowerment of history done on 365
    but they gave us 28 days of celebration
    now we taking it to a higher level
    to celebrate our african civil rights & movement


    Three hundred sixty five dayz

    We could sing their praises forever and a day, no one month is certainly not long enough. I particularly liked these lines:
    I felt such pride and strength within these lines. Much enjoyed and appreciated poet, do flow on.

    Twenty eight days to pay homage to African American history, what a small insignificant tribute to a people who have done so much in history to contribute to America.

    It is a single month, but we have 365 days to celebrate in our homes, to our children and every chance we get to teach pride and hope to those who still struggle to keep their heads up.

    I'm diggin the flow of this....$Rich$

    HisStory is all screwed up, what they fail to say is ...that we do need the "28" days to rest, from celebrating our Story the other "337" days.
