    It is said.....
    what happened in the past
    does not matter
    it is said.....
    that slavery is in the past
    and we should move on
    it is said.....
    we do not deserve 40 acres
    and a mule.
    ~we must know
    we are one link to a chain
    of promise
    symbolic to a greater
    purpose
    for the past will always be
    the present
    we are of symbiotic cords
    ~the proof
    the struggles are the same
    the tears are the same
    justice is the same
    being black is the same
    In each one of us lies
    a legacy from the past
    of every negroe slave
    of every hung black man
    of every raped black woman
    of every black poet
    of every black minstrel
    of every black musician
    of every black inventor
    of every slain black leader
    of every burnt down town
    of every fallen black soldier
    each charred cross on the lawn
    of all the blood, sweat, pain
    ..........then and today...........
    we have spilled unto the soils
    of America
    and still.....we endure
    ~we must understand
    this consummates us all as ONE!

    Sister Epiphany you have captured a solidarity we
    should all have as a people unified to a greater cause
    past, present and future. Tight! Tight! Tight!
