folks his cries for freedom heard
around the world, he be bold
as the key role in the civil rights
movement, opposed segregation
as it rose to devastation
in AMERICA kept a nation in separation
King spoke about this
and no doubt it broke the wrist
of racism, Atlanta Georgia his birth
place, his mother bought from her womb
one that'll change the world soon
he had to put up with pain

always on TV interview
his father a preacher
mother a schoolteacher
King was a Baptist preacher
now a chance to toss opportunities
as his voice echoed across communities
he used words such as “IHAVE A DREAM”
as peaceful protest seems to grab the scene
and “WE SHALL OVERCOME” need extreme
freedom it was lonely times
when whites only signs
was over restrooms and cafeterias

It's been a good while, but this place has always been home. Thankful to be here.
Hi! I'm not as active on this account as I want to be. For one I tend to forget that this site exists until I check my email. Two, I'm currently in the process of building up a fine art site for Oklahoma black and native historical references. The references correlate with another site that will be a storytelling site that has not yet been produced.
Happy to be back and gaining more knowledge!
