black claws
standing strong
hanging high
streams are loud
not just for the crowd
leading sky
leading strive
black history just might
see the light
inside this
black crowd
black pride
black on the rise

black history
black history
black history
historically
history
in the shells history
in the chambers there history
in the chains there history
in the streets there history
Theres history
