"If you look deeply into the palm of your hand, you will see your parents and all generations of your ancestors. All of them are alive in this moment. Each is present in your body. You are the continuation of each of these people." ~ Thich Nhat Hanh

"Out of the huts of history's shame
I rise
Up from a past that's rooted in pain
I rise
I'm a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.
Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
I rise
Into a daybreak that's wondrously clear
I rise
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
I rise
I rise
I rise." - Maya Angelou

"we lost the definition of I
we lost the ability to ask "Why?"
We lost our freedom but the time will soon come when we Sankofa
We lost so much and we don't even know
We lost things undreamed of
We lost the sight to see...
The necessity to Sankofa
We lost our religion Our culture Our way
We lost the ability to readily connect with our DNA
We lost so many critical details
Can you hear mama calling for us to Sankofa
Can you hear Mama Afrika Sankofa
Go back and fetch your language Sankofa
Go back and fetch foods that feed your soul Sankofa
Go back and fetch your Afrikan spirit Sankofa
Go back and fetch your identity you will find there is so much more to you and me Sankofa
Go back and fetch the names that remind us of our purpose Sankofa
Go back and fetch and you will see Our divine beauty Our possibilities are endless" - NZINGAH Oniwosan
