Who Are We?

Updated: Nov 1

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?
