Who Are We?

Updated: Nov 1, 2022

By Samaria Rountree, Virginia State University

We are dark, light, and all shades in between

We are precious, like silver and gold

We are kings and queens

We are afros, kinks, and coils

We are braids and weave

We are idealist,

still preaching,

“I Have a Dream”

We are silenced voices, and unheard cries

We are unjust deaths, covered up with lies

We are freed lives created from trapped souls

if they saw how

We are

treated today,

would they be happy to know?
