What would America be without the struggle of Black folk?
How could we fight terrorism, if we had never moved beyond slavery? What if the Civil Rights Movement had stood still?
What if there were no Martins, Malcolms or Medgars Or before them

Where and what would America be?
What if we didn’t fight?
What if we believed what we were told? What if we were still bought and sold?
What would America be?
Could we even tell right from wrong? If Blacks were
Still lynched And hosed And bombed?
What if the mindset of 1962 colored our soul in 2002? Hmm, would you even be you?
And what would America be?
