TITLE: Black History and the BAN Network
These are the ancestors of choice;
And when things were not right
They lifted up their voice;
They sacrificed in times of struggle
Took the bill in the hustle;
Made a dream for the country to wonder
Moves these people made struck like thunder;
More opportunity was open,
The chains on minorities broken;
No more limits no pressure,
From King to Obama now we go get the measure;
Black History I still treasure,
Ancestry held out in pain;
Just to make more opportunity
For minorities to do more things;
See we cannot blame,
Our peoples struggled thru some times;
And I was not even alive when they were
But I can vibe it in this rhyme;
allowed opportunity to make it thru college,
That was the reason
I got good wisdom and knowledge;
And Black History was motivation
To be a great person for the nation;
And change was already done in a sense,
President Obama hey that’s no coincidence;
Black History leaves rights open in spots,
Success is on the rise we must always keep that hot;
Yeah this heritage yes this is for me,
I am so grateful for our month in BLACK HISTORY;
