Africa for Africans

put my children on the land

my children will blossom

and feed this land

and care for people

and be plenty

 

 

 

During the Black History Month and beyond (cuz face it, every month deserves Black History), this blog will honor people who demonstrated critical elements of the Black / African experience with commemorative poems. This poem pays homage to anti-colonial pro-African leaders-of-nation, such as Mandela, Tutu, Nkrumah, Nyerere, Lumumba, Nasser, Gdaffi, Sankara, and Kwando.
