Poem and presentation by Laetitia Dossou
For my people from the coast of Senegal to the Horn of Africa;
For my people who were enslaved for centuries;
For my people whose knees were humbly bent;
For my people whose feet are cracked and hands rough;
For my people who paraded naked with whip marks on their bodies;
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;
For my people trying to create their own dreams;
For my people suffering to find themselves in this harsh world;
For my people so close to their dreams yet so far away;
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!
