American backbone: Angels

American backbone: Angels

The Black male, Negro, Colored, African-American or any name of the moment is just one aspect of America’s true backbone. Shout out Shawn Peters.

With every aching muscle
there was a song within the soul

With every lashing whip
there was a candle sacred blown

with every raw hard labor
the hands reached down against the earth
held high against the sky
and knew a time would improvise a season
implement a reason
for good will to reign again.
