THE NEGRO SPEAKS OF RIVERS
I've known rivers: I've known rivers ancient as the world and older than the flow of human blood in human veins.
My soul has grown deep like the rivers.
I bathed in the Euphrates when dawns were young. I built my hut near the Congo and it lulled me to sleep. I looked upon the Nile and raised the pyramids above it. I heard the singing of the Mississippi when Abe Lincoln went down to New Orleans, and I've seen its muddy bosom turn all golden in the sunset.
I've known rivers: Ancient, dusky, rivers.
My soul has grown deep like the rivers.

those who would call themselves "artists" should beware that those who consume the greatest amount of our culture are whites and other non black cultures the "art" you put out there should not consist of hatred for sisters, brothers or others, for "art" that hates or portrays negative images solely for the purpose of a dollar is not art at all beware of those who consume your "art" urban "culture" becomes urban legend becomes urban truth becomes urban fact and is not so easily erased at all me

Between 1441 and 1888, Europeans and their descendants in the Americas enslaved many millions of Africans. Torn from their homeland, men, women, and children were shipped to the Americas and forced into slavery.
Slave traders actively encouraged wars in Africa, resulting in the death or enslavement of millions more Africans on that continent than ended up in the Americas. Scholars of African history believe the total number of Africans killed or abducted in Africa and the Americas could be between 50 and 100 million. Whatever the figure, the slave trade brought death and dislocation on an unimaginable scale. Its full impact will never be fully known.
There have never been any reparations paid to the decedents of slaves in this country.
