    Dark island revolution was not unnoticed,
    as fearful plantation houses whispered of it
    but slave cabins glowed with inspired eyes.
    Sampson’s hair spread to solid ebony shoulders
    thinking, planning, taking freedom leadership.
    House mentality betrayal reveals liberty’s design,
    black Sampson capture, a collaborator’s reward.
    Carrier of Toussaint's battle cry, Gabriel Prosser
    and thirty-four demand freedom’s price—execution.

    Gabriel Prosser

    The story of Gabriel Prosser is one that is worth telling even if it is in condensed form and some liberties have been taken along with it--not many people know of Gabriel, but he is worth researching--Ra

    You know I always

    appreciate the way you process and disseminate the lessons we all need to learn about ourselves, our struggle, and why it's so important to look back in order to move forward...cataracts of misinformation through miseducation permanently excised from our eyes. May our pupils be ever dilated and fixed on nothing but the truth.

    speak prophet
