FOR MY PEOPLE

Poem and presentation by Laetitia Dossou

slide2

For my people from the sand dunes of the Sahara to the Cape of Good Hope;

For my people from the coast of Senegal to the Horn of Africa;

For my people who were enslaved for centuries;

slide3

For my people who toiled under the scorching sun;

For my people whose knees were humbly bent;

For my people whose feet are cracked and hands rough;

slide4

For my people who endured cruelty;

For my people who paraded naked with whip marks on their bodies;

slide5

For the women who bore the fruits of their wombs in darkness;

For the men shackled and tied down as the phantom of our past mocked us;

For the boys and girls who were denied life and died brutally;

slide6

For my people who were deceived;

For my people trying to create their own dreams;

For my people suffering to find themselves in this harsh world;

slide7

For my brothers and sisters of generations past, present, and future;

For my people so close to their dreams yet so far away;

slide8

May we rise!

May a new page be turned in our history!

May we stand united

and may our generation be a peaceful, forgiving one!

May this resound in our ears!
